Installation and socially engaged project, 2018
The artist worked with residents of Springfield, Illinois, who she asked to loan her something that they “hold onto, but do not keep on public display.” These objects were then used to create an installation at the Visual Arts Gallery at the University of Illinois, Springfield. The installation activated the gallery’s idiosyncratic architectural spaces and employed hiding, revealing, and discovering as aesthetic strategies. All objects were returned to their lenders at the conclusion of the exhibition.

Socially engaged project and installation with four radio transmitters, 2017
A four-channel sound installation for car radios, commissioned by the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs for the Edgewood, NM Town Park and Pavilion. The audio featured a conversation among three of the town’s residents. Each voice in the conversation was recorded individually and then broadcast on a separate radio frequency. Thus, multiple cars and viewers will had to be present to hear the entire conversation. A fourth radio transmitter broadcast a field recording of wind blowing at the site, a prominent and persistent environmental feature in Edgewood.
