Note on the Collaboration
Last summer I was a Visiting Artist at the Cultural Center in my mother’s hometown of New York Mills, Minnesota. I started placing words around town spelled out with coins and bird seed. I photographed each word installation over a series of days, capturing the collaboration with trains (“Take Off series”), and birds (“Take Hold” series) that in each case, disassembled the words. It was a fun and energizing process to leave words around town. One installation, made of nickels and dimes, stayed in place for several months!
