    Kinetic sound installation

    Designed for 
    the Saint Sauveur chapel in Caen, Caten is a site specific, kinetic sound installation comprised of 300 wires suspended in the chapel. Gravity pulls the wires into a parabolic shape that mimics the arched interior spaces of the church as a rotating arm  attached to the wires causes them to rise and fall. The motor emits a series of notes inspired by hymn to St John the Baptist,  as the new notes play, the lower frequency notes  continue to resonate throughout the space— referencing the incantations and chants that once filled the space.

    Fireflies on the Water (2002), by Yayoi Kusama.

    Fireflies on the Water isan installation made of 150 lights, mirrors and water.
    It offers an out-of-this-world experience from the confines of a modest room paneled with mirrors and adorned with 150 tiny beads of light deliberately suspended throughout the compact space. Upon entering the room, there’s an illusionary effect that gives the impression of infinite space reflected on all sides and in the two inches of water that flows below.

    July 12 - September 30, Whitney Museum.

Moistcape 
As an opportunity to explore the play of the natural within the artificial, a three-dimensional steel matrix inset with panels of living mosses and enclosed within by translucent volume was set up as an installation in an art gallery. The matrix emerges from the walls and hovers over a groundscape of recycled rubber, which is as springy and giving underfoot as the mosses are to the touch of a hand.
The spatial configurations of these verdant planes vary in size, height and proximity to the visitor, thus creating a range of possible encounters. There is no designated path to follow, but instead present a space to explore where the underside is as telling as the topside. MoistSCAPE allows visitors to experience the play in scale from the miniature of the floating mossy landscape to the actual one of the installation as a whole.
