RESERVOIR  2012

Installation at Shemer Art Center and Museum, Phoenix, Arizona. Industrial felt, yarn, and wood.

In Reservoir, the layers of stacked industrial felt contour a fictional landscape reminiscent of Arizona's desert and canyon forms. Although the term 'reservoir' is often associated with the manmade construction of a dam or a naturally occurring underground collection of water, my piece also explores the term abstractly as it metaphorically relates it to the collection of knowledge or the "reservoir of knowledge." The yarn balls reference both water and thought, as an individual drop or idea an das a collective body of water knowledge.
