Installation / Performance / Experiment
Cranbrook Academy of Art

 “shoulders” is a performative installation piece. The artist channels the emotions they are experiencing and imbibes them into dough.

The dough is placed on to a platform which is slowly lowered repeatedly into a glowing bath into which it slowly dissolves.
The bath is contained within a wooden altar, that sits upon a large wooden box that acts as a reverberation chamber that amplifies the sound of the motors and splashing water.
