 "Out of Reach" explores the action of reaching while investigating the traces that places leave on the body. Using materials and soft sound collected during my travels in Mexico, I engaged in a repetative cycle over the duration of 1 hour. Throughout that hour, the work addresses how a single gesture can shift it's meaning over time when implemented into a different context.  created as part of Vertigo Series, "Wonder Women" Waterloo Art Center, Waterloo, Iowa USA

 In 2009, I went through a personal shape-shift after a mindful and significant weight loss. Around this time, I began exploring spaces and places that I could not previously fit. What started as an exercise in measuring my new body, soon evolved into a series of site-sensitive installations titled, “Adventures in Being (small)”. “Adventures in Being (small)” is a project that addresses how humans fit into various environments, both corporally and conceptually.
