On the Brink I, 2014

“Men are only a vapor; exalted men, an illusion. Weighed in the scales, they go up, together they are less than a vapor.” – Holman CSB scripture. 

On the Brink is a body of installation work illustrating the precarious fragility of material culture and consumerism abstracted from familiar banal environments that warn about falling out of balance.

A cylindrical screen suspended from the ceiling serves as a projection surface in the namesake work of the series, On the Brink. An animated storm tosses around the residue of everyday life: cell phones, laptops, pets, jewelry, cars and beer bottles, which float and swirl around and above viewers.
