A Circle is Always Self-Touching
205 Hudson Gallery, Hunter College
November 10 – 23, 2022

I installed seven Dripper(s) near the ceiling of the gallery. A few rhythmically dripped water throughout the day, unreliably counting time, impacting site navigation and transforming the surfaces below.

Basin, 2022
silicone, pigment, polystyrene, water
12 x 44 x 52 in

Water from a drip system collected in a central recessed area, producing a metronomic sound. The piece was dried each night.

Wetting Rack, 2022
fabric, ink, steel, water
120 x 30 x 35 in

For a duration of two weeks, water from a drip system slowly digested the ink on the fabric’s surface. The image on the left is from day 1. The right image is from day 14.
