Light Works

In the 2009 San Antonio wide arts celebration, Luminaria, I made a large blacklight installation called Coral Jive of glowing mushroom coral silkscreens and plastic casts of sea mollusks. The installation addressed issues of coral bleaching that is happening worldwide due to pollution and global warming. Sporadic, is a body of work which both glow in the dark and fluoresce under a black light. The pieces are inspired by sieni, mushrooms, that I observed in the Finnish forests and dried Japanese varieties of fungi.
