Manipulate Me 2021
Plaster, Glass Reflector Beads, Blown and Sculpted Glass Tools, Projected Image of the Artist, Table, Wooden Stands, Vinyl Indicators
An interactive installation in which the audience is invited to utilize specialized tools made of glass to experiment with the projected image, which is situated within a frame on the opposite wall. Within the darkened space, it is possible to project the artist around the space, distorting her placid visage and placing the manipulator's actions on display for those who stand within view. Agency, responsibility, permission, and intent are called into question by this work, though its experience is pleasurable, which deepens the exploration of awareness in power dynamics.
