Record Player “Cassi”, 2012 Mixed Media


My record player is inspired by the work of Tinguely and Marclay. This is a collaboration of sculptural machines and connections between sound and noise. My record player is designed from a children's "Sit'n'spin", motor and pulley making the entire sculpture function as one piece. I chose the record Mozart to signify a timeless production of sound and noise.

Instructions: Please take the pink detached cone and gently place it onto the record to listen. Please do not touch the sculpture or the on/off switch.

This record player is dedicated to my little sister, Cassi.
I know all my hard work involved in this project and this class
will reflect the hard work she has shown my family and I.
                                                                  I love you.

Classroom Lightbox

Using a light-box is inspired by the media advertising to depict the separation of beauty and the beauty myth of women in today's generation. The huge interest generated from this work has encouraged me to continue exploring this medium and create further pieces. A truly captivating and striking piece with the use of negative and positive light with hopes to stand out from the rest of pieces. The photographic image has always interested me in terms of how the perspectives of an image changes how one can view the same object in different ways. The definition of an image never stays the same. Negative space is as important in my design as the visual elements. One of the reasons why I feel in love with photography is the way light and shade creates the forms, and also because it all happens very quickly. The play of depth of field, in and out of focus, creates other issues that are challenging. Each work is a combination of the relationship of at least two images with textures …
