Parque Natural Sierra María is a national park that sits in the middle of rural Andalucía, Spain. The land is characterized by dozens of abandoned houses that were once inhabited by families that farmed the land. Griffon vultures are regularly seen gliding through the sky in search food.
To make this piece, broken glass from discarded beer bottles are collected and taken up a mountain. They are then cleaned and sorted to mimic the shadow of a griffon vulture.
Wood, paper, string, and water
5 ft Diameter
18 compartments are built using wood and paper. The compartments are attached then suspended from the ceiling using grey string. Each compartment is filled with water and holes are poked though the paper. The piece begins to drip as the water soaks though the paper.
Projection on bells and string
Hundreds of bells are hung from the ceiling with white string. All bells are connected and ring in unison when a single string is pulled. A blurred projection of clouds is cast over the entirety of the installation.
Projection on Rose Petals
Installed in Barcelona, Spain.
Fresh rose petals are nailed on a large surface and suspended in front of the street facing window of the gallery. On the wall directly across from the window, fresh rose petals are nailed in the formation of a rectangle. An ipad facing the installation on the back wall video chats a laptop which projects the image the ipad captures horizontally onto the suspended body of roses facing the front window of the gallery space.
