Songs from the RIBbed Cage
A site specific collaboration with Suvan Geer. Gathering facts, figures and poetry, this installation was a series of empty bird cages that lead the viewer on a walk through a corridor at the 18th Street Arts Complex for their site specific exhibition Detours. Using stories from children and L.A. residents, the work focused on air quality, the act of breathing, the lung capacity of children and the use of canaries in coal mines. Stories were printed on waxed paper in the shape of kites.
