INSTALLATION WORK

temporal pieces and temporary work



Installations are temporal. Every time I install this Freedmen's Field piece it installs differently. No real difference with any of my work. It all installs. It all changes. The temporal quality of objects, and found objects in particular, invites questions about our compulsion to save.

The public invitation visual art offers to experience the seductive character of the temporal quality of all we know excites me and my work.

"Change/Exchange" was an evolving exhibition from the fall of 1997, that took place at Hickory Street Annex, Dallas, Texas. The first month was an exhibition of small human scale works. The second month I wrangled praying mantises and salamanders, signs bought from street people, and presented a small portion of the "Third Ward Archive" from Project Rowhouses.

As previously noted, I have a difficult time separating installation from the rest of my work.

For this format I am drawing a line between the two halves of this "Change/Exchange" project, and saying this "EXCHANGE" is installation.

"Change/Exchange"
continues to evolve in my work in some direct ways and most probably in some ways I'm totally unaware of.
