On August 17, 2017, a roughly 70-mile strip of solar eclipse totality, and hundreds of miles of partial totality, swept across the United States, following a path from Oregon to South Carolina. 2017 to Present, an installation of used, handmade solar-eclipse viewers made by the public for this eclipse-event, represents a partial selection from the artist’s growing archive.

Mana Contemporary Miami Artist-in-Residence, July 2018 – August 2019: A Century of Dissent: Miami!

For Resurrection City, 2018
Based on historical research and 5 key photographs of 1968’s Resurrection City—co-organized by MLK, right before his assassination—an occupation/protest/city of 3000 for 43 days in the national mall’s lawn taking up 15 acres, and part of the Poor People’s Campaign of ‘68.  Participants in the Resurrection City Reading Residency were invited to spend the night in a recreated tent-shelter inspired by those that populated 1968’s  Resurrection City. The tent contained simple sleeping quarters and an idiosyncratic library filled with physical literature and ephemera centered on the events of 1968 and specifically the Poor People’s Campaign/Resurrection  City.
