About the Work

Falling Still utilizes 200 cement-cast feathers as individual pixels to 
create a larger image across 6 planes. Each of these sculptures has been 
hand-poured into molds of actual feathers, exhibiting finely detailed 
quills on one side, and flat concrete surfaces on the other. They hang 
from the ceiling via discrete fishing lines, swinging, twisting and 
turning as viewers move around the 8 x 15 x 4 foot installation area. 
 From all perspectives but one, the work floats between 1-dimensional 
lines, 2-dimensional planes and 3-dimensional pixels. View it exactly 
perpendicular to its planes, and all the work's elements cohere into a 
bit-mapped image of a body, leaping through the air. While Falling Still 
is itself suspended between movement and stasis, it also moves and 
arrests us. The installation directs us in and around incongruous 
objects, through an improbable image, and across multiple dimensions.
