Love Taps from Lily, 2010

The process involved in making this installation artwork involved recording my daughter talking about her brother, taking those recordings (and their visualized waveforms of words such as ‘chub-head’, ‘chump’, etc.) and translating them into three-dimensional wood-turnings. This ‘pile’ of words is meant to grow and grow for a number of years, just as her continuation of these jabs or ‘love-taps’ continues.
