Aahrt-Drop (from Crash Landing),
2003, custom parachute, frame, Aahrt-Boy Bars, printed cardboard boxes, steel pedestal,
enamel, installation view.
The sculpture Aahrt–Drop constitutes a shipment of handmade artist energy bars dropped by
parachute into a gallery, crushing a pedestal and occupying a picture frame. Above a hole is
painted on the ceiling.
Artist Drop (from Crash Landing),
2003, cast cement with acrylic paint, spray paint on wood, plaster and spray paint on Styrofoam,
acrylic wall painting, cactus, television, and 3 minute video loop.
Along with Aarht Drop, Artist Drop questions how art and artist come into being and how a work
might find itself in a gallery setting. Part heroic - part foolishness, the artist is dropped from the
sky. This video is played on an upturned television next to a park bench in alter states.
2003, installation view, Hunter College, New York.
This installation view shows the three works in a field of painted targets, faux desert rocks, and
cactus. Each work set below a hole in the ceiling, maintains a relationship to the architecture,
compiling various scenarios of triumph or failure.
2003, oil on wood with handmade bedding, 14 x 1 x 2’.
This fourteen-foot structure fluctuates in its likeness between a glorious tower and a crippled,
self-propagating series of stacked bunk beds. A dream object for orphans or a possible solution
for communal living, Bunk Tower shows both idealism and desperation.
