on motion and interface
experimentation, and many of her projects are built around interactive narrative.
About the tile –United States of America, Ceramic, Reduction, High Fire,
Cone 10: These
tiles are made from the ingredients for farming: soil and minerals. They
are close to this natural process,
and close to the earth. The marks on the tiles are unique to the potter’s
wheel: They represent the stars and
stripes of our flag, the tread marks of the tractor wheels, the people who
live here, and, at times, myself.
Finally the piece is fired, making the marks permanent, just as time strengthens
our bounds to one another.
