not a dancing bear

Copyright 1982-2017

Installation view of a stage/set for performance of a transformation of a material. Each corner of a square is a station. I begin hand-sawing processed wood such as rulers, toys, and other wooden objects tied to a language. This leads to the creation of charcoal, then to the fictional creation of small fireworks, the paper shells of which become tree-like forms, projected onto a growing forest charcoal drawing on brown paper. Duration and dimensions variable. Begun 2012.
