Portfolio > Untitled (standing snow angel)

MFA Thesis Exhibition
Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum
Washington University in St. Louis
May 7 - August 1, 2010

For Untitled (standing snow angel), museum visitors were invited to stand against the wall and make several swinging motions with their arms while holding a pencil in each hand. As graphite marks were made on a vast expanse of white wall over the duration of the exhibition, viewers became more aware of their bodies in space and a collective pattern of lines and smudges began to form--one that spoke to our shared finitude and revealed presence past. The piece was painted over at the conclusion of the exhibition.
