Connections: a Flying Mosaic
Overall Dimensions: Arc with a 6'―7' Diameter

This installation piece is an assemblage of 1/4"x3/4" square boxes―like particles of the world―that are connected through a weave-like pattern of thin threads knotted together. Each connection is delicate, yet strong enough to sustain the structure as a whole. Pinned to some of these cubes you find pictures of people, connections I've made throughout my travels. It's a type of suspended photo collage. The piece is made from leftover memories of places and people, preserved in papers that have come my way (pamphlets, catalogs, magazines, postcards, etc.).
