Fragments of Antarctica is comprised of all new work based on my 2017 SMFA/Tufts Traveling Fellowship to Antarctica.

This exhibit features photographic pairings and groups, a two-channel video, along with two site-specific installations:

Edge of the Current: Antarctic Sound is a three-channel video installation that activates the curved balcony in the MFA’s Contemporary Wing. Viewers can navigate along the edge, peer over, or be encircled by the 65 foot long curve, along with experiencing it from under (the) water.

Merging the tumultuous Antarctic seas with the architecture, it creates a watery surface and perimeter for the exhibit, while generating a sea-level waterline one-story-high within the museum.

Below Churning Ice, consists of three suspended, kinetic sculptures, Churning Icebergs I - III, that range in size from 4 x 7 ½  ft to 9 x 6 ft (H x W). I designed and installed the sculptures to take advantage of the 10 - 23 ft high ceilings, skylight roof, and open balcony so they would reflect natural and artificial light while rotating beyond the traditional confines of the space. The sectional, brushed-aluminum sculptures reference the above/below water aspects of icebergs, while inverting our typical perspective, placing us beneath the ice.

Nature on simulated nature...

Both of the site-specific installations are transformed by the natural light in the Contemporary Wing - shifting in intensity based on the weather and the time of day (like the ocean). For example, portions of Edge of the Current may be washed away by the bright sun, but in the late afternoon and evening the projections become strong and powerful. Simultaneously, when it's sunny the three Churning Icebergs bounce sunlight around the gallery creating ever-changing light and shadow patterns, while on overcast days and in the evenings, the sculptures reflect the rich multi-layered white and blue gallery lights (pictured above)

If you're someone who likes to tag photos on social media, you can show me what it looked like when you were there!
