STILL WATERS, Installation, video projection on iron bed, 59" x 79" x 54", Nevada Museum of Art, 2006, and San Jose Museum of Art, 2004

Still Waters originated at Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, during an artist residency. A stationary camera was used to record the surface of this deep, volcanic body of water as it reflected the slow moving clouds that cross the sky at midmorning. Crater Lake is seen visually, but also felt viscerally, its power the undertow of the subconscious. In projecting the film onto an object, an iron bed, the experience of standing at the water’s edge is brought to the viewer in a museum setting, merging nature and culture, the landscape and the domestic object, the exterior and interior world.
