These intervention/performance pieces shift awareness and ownership of civic spaces from passivity to engagement by creating transient, theatrical moments and temporary monuments.

I structure these interventions so the democratic, organically formed audience can enter into the work on a variety of levels. The spectacle and sculptural quality of these events provide an entry for people to approach, engage, challenge and express their opinions. The mobility of these projects challenges the politics of designation, privilege and maintenance of these honored spaces.

I hope to generate a critical, optimistic option for people to form their own relationships and definitions regarding public space, civic monument and social memorial.


The temporal shifting, planar, framing qualities and characteristics of the camera's point of view is exploited by the performing prestidigitator/protagonist.
