The Growing Metaphysical Void at the Center of My Bedroom Ceiling, 2010
spit wads from magazine ads, dimensions vary

A series of sculptural installations influenced by the time spent working in an office and the relationship to free-time. The ceiling tile, grey commercial carpet and wood molding are incorporated in various sculptural objects as borders and surfaces. Works are slowly built up from small bits of cultural detritus, the very things we use to forestall and speed up time.
