studies in the ephemeral



This body of work deals with questions of the material/immaterial as well as object/experience. Bubble blowers act as the vehicle by which awareness of the body and the mind is achieved.  During a concentrated effort, such as blowing a bubble, one becomes immersed in oneself and the realization that the body is performing occurs: if only for a moment.  The transformation of one’s bodily function, such as breathing into a physical object, such as a bubble, can create a sense of tension and temporality.  Suggesting the relationship between memory and experience, the bubble blowers also act as a metaphor for the temporary and fragile state of childhood and our dependency on objects as stimulators of memory.
