Roswell Rush Hour: 2021

The UFO crash at Roswell is the quintessential New Mexican story.

Created for a corporate computer center, this installation portrays unique and eccentric alien characters get jammed up in a Möbius Time Loop, begging the question: “Does time move in an orderly progression forward, known as timeʼs arrow, or can it loop back upon itself?

Bride of the Bomb:  October 2013 - February 2014

 

The prophecies of the Hopi Indians state that the United States will be destroyed by radioactivity. Whether this is from a nuclear exchange or waste from the production of weapons and energy is unclear.

 

The installation Bride of the Bomb deals with how war and conflict has become routine in our modern civilization. Rather than being concerned with the consequences of permanent war our culture focuses upon trivial matters. Truly a celebrities’ wedding can garner more media attention than the deaths of thousands of persons by disease and conflict in a dozen locations around the globe. All of the figures and war machines are ceramic sculptures.

I Scream You Scream, We All Scream...: March 2009

 

Installation created for "The Trouble With Boys and Girls" shown at the Mesa Art Center Mesa Arizona, NCECA 2009.

What if you threw a party and no one showed up?

 

Well then you invite all your imaginary friends.

 

If it was my party here are some of the guests, I’d invite to an imaginary ice cream social.

 

The Blue Bunny of course brings the ice cream. But the Skull Sundae is tri-color sherbet. Lemons and bananas are scattered about because this is a tropical fruit flavored sherbet.

 

Of course, eating too much ice cream can lead to an Upset Stomach. He came to the party all dapper with top hat white gloves and spats.

 

The MeeBot all dressed up with fancy icons is responsible for the social media and live streaming of the party.

 

The Jackie O Bot is very fancy with her cooling tower shaped pillbox hat. She may be atomic powered, but her heart is pure gold.

 

The party takes place in an endless summer afternoon, in an imaginary land or distant dimension.

 

Where do our imaginary friends go after we’re all grown up?
