Camera / Room
The genesis for Camera / Room was a desire to photograph my sculpture in natural light. What emerged was a body of work that integrates photography, sculpture, and performance. An open-ceilinged wooden cube, eight feet to a side with apertures facing east and west, was built in a meadow in upstate New York. The structure became a studio, a theater, and an analytic “camera” or room. The chair, not always shown but ever-present, stands in for the artist, the audience, and the analyst.
The room is a personal, inward-looking space that provides the foundation for more outward-looking, public work.
