This is a video of an installation that happened in the sculpture gallery at the University of Montana on 1-11-2011


Clay has had close relations with humans since the first ceramic objects entered the home. It is a material rich with history and memory as fired objects. However, it also has the potential to record actual physical memories or events. I want the viewer to feel like an active participant within this installation, as the piece is completed once everyone has been participated. With the clay recording the experience, I want the viewers to enter a place where they are creating, smelling, feeling and having a physical conversation with the clay.

Inspiration for this piece has come from the material itself and from the Apollo 11 mission, the first manned lunar landing. When the astronauts stepped off the lunar module, their impressions were captured in the lunar surface, virtually forever. Clay has this same potential to capture events in time. In its malleable form clay can accept an impression, and hold that impression permanently.
