FALL RISK is the first result of an ongoing collaboration with the sculptor Nate Ricciuto, which exhibited at the Kitchen Table Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. The collaboration offered us the opportunity to work playfully to harmonize our parallel interests in natural phenomena and the apparatuses that constrain them, materiality, and industrious inquiry. I work mainly with simple sculptural materials, textiles, prints, and drawings; Nate often utilizes crafted glass works, kinetic sculptures, found materials, and light– although he is constantly inventing and sourcing surprising media. The collaboration led to some very curious material juxtapositions and connotations.
