Rehearsal for Unfolding the Universe, 2011
collage, glue, plastic, hair and dust on wall and ceiling, 66 x 36 x 30 inches

Collage from various magazine sources. They are placed together in a way that further drives the imagery outside of the body. Other elements like hair, dust and patches of glue are added to establish an absurdity of production. This assembly, like all of my work, reflects connections between self and the outside world, be it everyday or cosmological.
