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.
