“Body Project” is a set of 3 modular, portable structures exploring the idea of “self as space.” It is comprised of  a reconfigured dome tent, a denim industrial “station”, and a large translucent fabric and conduit spiral. These pieces were installed and documented in various urban and wilderness sites such as the LA River, Joshua Tree, White Sands National Monument, and Venice Beach between 2008-10. “Pink Tent” represents a nomadic home/hearth filled with personal relics of photo albums, addictive vices, music, and trash; “Station” explores an aesthetic of mysterious deep city spaces; “Spiral” is a participatory, ego-less structure whose function is to re-frame wilderness landscapes by reflecting light and allow space for group construction and movement. These structures loosely reference the chakra system, and in their materiality, compose a traveler’s self portrait that assimilates into outer landscape.
