Breathing slowly in and out, rising and falling away from the wall, ‘Bioavailability’ and ‘Suck a little, look a little’ address the sacrifices of motherhood and nursing and the struggle to find energy and time to work.

I was invited to be in a millennium show. The Party bag inflates and deflates VERY slowly at the same rate as my resting heart rate. The confetti gets stirred everytime the bag inflates. Ho Hum--and so the ‘end of the world’ millennium was overrated and underwhelming.

1999. Guard Shack, Bergemot Station, Santa Monica, CA.
I was invited to create a site specific piece for a project space at Bergemot Station in the Guard Shack at the entrance. I painted the interior yellow and hung pink and red fluorescent lights so that the inflating/deflating vessel would be illuminated at night. The clear jellyfish like bag would slowly inflate and completely fill the space and then deflate. The banner poked fun of Bergemot and consumerism. The double entendre of ‘Aspirations’ as breathing and ambitions was complemented by ‘As Is’ –or take me as I am.
