How do you lengthen so far that high wind suspends and stretched air envelopes beneath? explored the vocabulary between disparate technologies. Found objects were allied with the moving image, the projection both framing and interplaying with these painted and sculptural forms. Juxtaposed together inside the installation environment, the looped and static works offered the audience a shifting sense of here and now.
