Holding My Breath | Installation view and participation detail | 7' x 8' x 5' | 1000 Paper lunch bags, breath | 2010 |

The installation is, at times, a performance. I blow my breath into each bag and toss them behind me, eventually filling the space with 'remnants' of myself. Recent installations have solicited viewer participation by posting a sign next to a stack of paper bags, asking to take a bag, blow into it, twist shut, and add it to the pile. The piece then becomes a history of the people passing through the space and a collaborative endeavor.
