For the "The Upward Spiral" at chashama, I used multicolored vinyl forms to assemble a large-scale swirl of vines that overtook the entire window, creating a vortex that drew the viewer into a cycle of pleasure and decay. Colored lights shining on the window evoked a vision of an artificial setting in an attempt to create a disparate, yet idealistic experience of space. Resembling industrialized biomorphic organisms, the vines are a reinterpretation of the natural landscape.
This project was supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
