site specific installation at ProArts in Oakland, CA | 2012


Interested in the push and pull between the technological and the organic, this installation addresses shifts in our culture that simultaneously drive us toward the organic, sustainable, local, and natural while also pulling us to be connected, plugged in, networked, tweeted, updated, and always in possession of the latest technological gadgets.  Tug-O-War explores these themes in a site-specific installation commissioned by Pro-Arts and installed in downtown Oakland.  Home to Pandora and Ask.com on one end and City Slickers Farm, People’s Grocery, and Ghost Town Farm on the other; Oakland and the Bay Area sit at the heart of this duality.
