Do You Miss Me?, 2016. Lumber, string lights, foam, quilt batting, sheets, pillows, postcards, objects, video, and audio.
"Our technology brings us closer across vast distances but still falls short of recreating communication in person. Consider that it is impossible to make eye contact during a live-streamed video call: one must stare into the camera to achieve the illusion of this connection. For my installation, I interviewed college students who are studying abroad and rely on digital forms of communication to reach their loved ones. As visitors within the room attempt to engage with their glitching, faulty presences, they can feel the near comfort of a familiar bedroom or a home, just out of reach, never quite visible through the static."
