Failing Structure, 2012
artist tape and balloon, x 120 x 360 x 20", Duration Variable
Much of my current work is primarily installation based and attempts to document time and objects that change over time. The primary way I have been exploring these ideas is by experimenting with balloons as a documentation of time. Since balloons are not airtight, they immediately start the deflation process once they are inflated. In the installations the balloons are used as structural elements that the entire work relies on. Over time as the balloons deflate, the structural integrity begins to fall apart, in some cases that could literally mean falling off the wall or tumbling to the ground.
