2012

I was an artist in the TOUGH Art Residency Program at The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. During that time, I prototyped and tested my installation on the museum floor and finally created the work titled “Things That Fly.” This project consist of a 4′ x 6′ wooden structure that is painted to look like the back of a digital camera. Behind this frame, there is a blue backdrop meant to emulate the sky and on the wall are a series of props that visitors can position within the frame to create a “scene.” They can then see what they are creating through a live video monitor which faces the frame.
