Shining Afternoons (2017)
Edible plant, plexi, wood, dirt, silkscreen, newsprint, tarp, rope, fabric, monitor, GoPro, mixed media; 288” x 156” x 210"
With a collection of edible plants from my grandmother’s garden as specimen slides, the viewers are able to handle and observe them
under a microscope built into the structure with their phone cameras. The viewers also could raise and lower a GoPro through a pulley
system to view a live-feed video of the three levels of tarps above. Thinking about the impermanence of “home” and the role of the
care taker, this installation focus on the process of observing decay, the effort of prolonging life and its ephemerality.
