Satellites (2014)
A collaboration investigating personal gravities and the efficiencies of shared production.

The project is structured around the question of how to utilize glass as a material for measuring time. Individuals are given a solid glass sphere and instructed to take the object everywhere they go. As it becomes part of daily life, the relationship between object and host is recorded on the surface of the glass. The satellite is kicked, rolled, carried, and dropped; every action leaves a smudge, stress, chip, or mark, rendering time on a physical form. These biographical objects act as a lens into the everyday, focusing upon proximity, awareness, exchange, weight, and the labor of transporting quotidian objects.

The handling, care, and maintenance of these objects do not function as public performances. They are instead collective one-off, private acts.
