Little Berlin Collaborative

After 10 weeks of collaboration my team consisting of Tyler Kline, Ashley Limes, Nike Desis, and myself, installed our completed sculpture at Little Berlin Gallery. The gallery is on Montgomery and Front St near the Berks El Station in the Kensington section of Philadelphia.
The opening of Offerings, an 80 person/20 team collaboration, opens this First Friday, June 5th from 6-10 pm. Many performance pieces will be in action that night, so don't miss it!

Our piece consists of a wooden armature encrusted with 3-dimensional mylar "nodes". The drawings on the mylar in sharpie and acrylic grew out of a 2-week map-making exercise. The finished piece feels like an explosion of all our paths and emotions and experiences during the time we worked together. It is unlike anything the 4 of us would normally have made and yet it still contains a spark of each of our personalities and art practices.

It hangs and twists in the drafty rafters, every glance a different perspective.
