Here are some more expansive and experimental projects that I've created through the years.
"Earth Memory" 2022
A short video of this work is at the bottom of this page.
The purpose of this project was to symbolically re-introduce “fish” back into the dry lake area with the installation of numerous flags printed with images of the prehistoric fish that would have existed in the area before the lake dried up. My goal is to remind viewers and area residents that the "desert" hasn't always e
Corporate Commission 2022
This commission features a "Continuum Basket" that is 120" wide and 84" tall. It features over 2000 crushed aluminum Beer and soda cans. Bird Singing Rattles appear on each side of the "basket" and the wall is painted to resemble a Southern California landscape.
"One Tract Mind" 2009

This work is a response to my experience at the Standing Rock Protest in 2016. The work features a "pipeline" that pierces gallery walls, "Storm Trooper-like" law enforcement dolls and black cords "leaking" onto the gallery floor. Audio headphones feature personal testimony of people who experienced the violence and suppressive actions of the local, state and federal governments.
"Fragility of the Written Word" 2007
This work features a sculptural "book" that has video projected upon its surface. The video depicts a hand writing elements of the bill of rights. However, the video has been reversed and the text is slowly removed from the image. This work was in response to the Bush Administration's rollback of certain freedoms.
