Custom printed & sewn textile Photo Documentation: installation and performance

Transitional is a work that wrestles with the absolutes, the moment a work is determined an art, traditional assumptions of making and "A"rt as commodity.This project examines what happens when imagery is echoed, dismantled and re-contextualized through the medium of the internet. Within the installation pots and mugs sway from product to post-Modern abstractions, while the shelves they sit upon reference minimalist structures. Everything is work. Digitally created textiles worn by members of the audience are echoed in the images displayed on the wall calling into question the extension of the frame.

The Transitional project consisted of 30 performers wearing custom printed & sewn textiles. As participants moved within the existing gallery space, transitioning into an additional offshoot of the artist's workspaces, audible cues were conducted by L.A. violinist Mo Javi.
