Striking out from a safe place.
Striking out from a safe place, is a temporary installation created for a three person show at Salem Art Works in Salem Massachusetts. The piece was created by sewing a large simple tent that was elevated slightly above the ground plane. Several 8 1/2 by 11 inch swaths of material were removed from the tent walls, creating tiny windows to the world outside the safety of the tent. Each piece if material removed was then starched, folded and pressed into a traditional paper airplane shape, and cast outside the tent, landing on a small patch of grass nearby.
