CONSTRUCT:DESTRUCT

END OF NATURE

SELF:EXAM



Installation

We all fall down


This large group exhibition was held at the Warehouse Gallery in Washington, DC, in April 2008. In it, curator Ruth Trevarrow asked artists to contemplate what the world would look like at its end. We could explore the root causes of the degradation of nature, the extant population, the loss of species we’ve experienced to date—a broad interpretation of the theme.


In my installation, We all fall down, I imagined stumbling upon a room long abandoned by its occupant. I wanted viewers to discern the clues and discover contents of the room (some of which were tucked away) in order to gain an understanding of the room’s inhabitant. Visual reminders of the past were scattered about with an endlessly-looped 8mm film of family memories projected onto the wall at the foot of the bed.


While my intent was not to reference my experiences with Hurricane Katrina, the associations could not be denied.
