Thirst (Elegy for Esther)


Site-Specific Installation
Islip Art Museum
East Islip
Long Island, New York

THIRST (Elegy for Esther) is a mixed media installation which explores rituals surrounding water and the search for water to satisfy both physical and metaphysical human longings. Entering a darkened room, the slow, unpredictable drips of water onto heated steel discs alter and extend one’s perception of time. Fishing poles mark the space like implements of anticipation. Small monitors resembling lead fishing weights suspend video images of a dowser’s search for water.

Mixed-media installation:
Heated steel discs, vinyl & copper tubing with water, fishing poles with video monitors as weights/pendulums
