My piece, She, is a singing printing sculpture. The idea started with an interest in performing the gesture and rhythm of typing. As you can see by viewing the work, there is a mysterious somewhat corporate looking wo man singing and typing in sync with the rhythm of a printer. Through out the course of the installation, the printer prints all 614 sentences in the novel Anna Karenina that start with the word, “she.” For example, “She passes the paper knife against the window pane.” and “She was more splendid than he had imagined her.” All these sentences end up as an opulent mess on the floor. My intention is to present this corporate woman in a haze of ownership. The viewer can decide whether she is the muse, subject or author of this collection of curated sentences.
