many, many eggshells!!!

Embarking on a new adventure...this summer I have been asked to create an installation at Michael Dowling's Medicine Wheel. The main piece is going to be a larger-than-life white eggshell dress. I am very excited about working with eggshells again!!

The students at Medicine Wheel have been collecting & washing white eggshells for months, and now the time has come to begin.


A nice aspect of this installation is that I will build the piece on site and it will be destroyed there at the end of the show. I don't need to worry about transporting the eggshell dress or storage after the show. I will be working there for the entire summer and most likely into September. This is my first official installation where I am considering the entire surroundings - walls, floor, ceiling.... Even though i have been mulling the idea over since January, now that the gallery is empty and waiting for me my ideas are changing right and left. I am eager to dive in and a little intimidated at the same time. But I always LOVE a challenge!!!
so keep checking in for updates!!!!...
peace
