Disc Walls: singles
Part of a two-month solo exhibition titled Edge Friction, this curving wall with three vortices connected the concave wall at the entrance with the ceilng suspended vortex Lift. One could follow the curving wall of Event Horizons to this ceiling installation in the far corner of the gallery then walk behind the wall to discover the framework and ratchet straps supporting the shiny mosaic on the other side.
K Space Contemporary is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization dedicated to presenting and promoting contemporary art. As a forum for creative exchange and experimentation, we aspire to educate and build awareness for innovative art in South Texas. K Space Contemporary is located in downtown Corpus Christi, Texas. K Space Contemporary is the oldest alternative art space in the Coastal Bend region. A primary goal of the organization is to exhibit emerging and mid-career artists. K Space provides a forum for under-represented artists whose works are experimental, non-commercial, or difficult to exhibit due to unusual installation requirements or site-specific ideas.

Installed at the Asian Arts Initiative, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
For the 2012 Visual Arts Network and National Performance Network Annual Meeting, I designed and created a CD installation titled Singularity for the Asian Arts Initiative in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Singularity was my addition to a selected four-person group exhibition featuring Colette Fu, Kenyatta Hinkle, and Benjamin Volt. This exhibition was made possible in part through support from the Visual Artists Network Exhibition residency, which is a program of the National Performance Network. Major contributors are the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Ford Foundation and the Nathan Cummings Foundation. The exhibition is held in conjunction with the NPN/VAN Annual Meeting--a national gathering of artists, curators, presenters and colleagues.

Installed at The Eleanor Prest Reese and The Robert B. Berkshire Galleries, Indianapolis, Indiana
Entropy was part of the three person exhibition titled 3 x 3. This was a unique exhibition experience: Paula Katz, the Gallery Director of the Herron School of art, invited three regional curators to each select one artist from the city or region to exhibit at Herron - hence the title "3 x 3". Jay Jordan, curator and director of the New Contemporary Center in Louisville, Kentucky, invited me to design a new installation for The Eleanor Prest Reese and The Robert B. Berkshire Galleries, Herron School of Art, Indianapolis, Indiana. This invitation led to the first CD installation.
