Spirit" (for John) - 1999
"My inspiration for this installation comes directly
from circumstances surrounding physical and
emotional health, illness and the trauma of loss.
It represents for me a distrust in the 'miraculous'
(read: technology) and in the faith of our
collective accomplishments which offer longevity,
immortality or the success over the natural; a
predilection toward invincibility in the face of
death. The relentless attempts at constructing
beauty, desirability and durability become the
subject of this discourse. It is my sense that we
must remind ourselves of the precariousness and
vulnerability we navigate everyday."
