The Clay Room

The Clay Room” is an interactive site- specific installation, which I am currently developing. This project allows visitors to perceive the land in a new way and to reconnect with the earth through the medium of local clays. Many of us have lost our connection to the land. The primary objective is to use art as a vehicle that engages people, especially children with the earth that will heighten their awareness of the land.

This project is of particular value for urban locations. For those who work with the land this installation may provide an unexpected experience of something already known.

Currently I am harvesting clays from Santa Fe and the surrounding area. This particular project proposes an untraditional presentation of clay in two dimensions on the walls and floor of the “clay room”.
