Inside the Wave

San Jose CA | 1992

Collaboration with Suzanne Girot, documentary filmmaker and fiber sculptor.  Commissioned by CA State University, San Jose, for its campus gallery, by art historian Patricia Sanders.

Built entirely of debris collected from San Jose salvage yards–especially Silicon Valley computer industry detritus.

Wave-labyrinth shape, viewer takes “journey” inside structure to its center hearth, and then reverses journey to return.  Metaphoric hero’s journey:  one travels interiorly to find strength and purpose, but must return to serve the world.
