26 September – 2 October 2016 | Divide and Conquer | Lock Up International | Istanbul | curated by Lewis Teague Wright
This installation was hosted by Lock Up International, a transient project space housed in storage units around the world. The installation was made in response to the crowd mentality and gathering of people in Taksim Square I witnessed after the attempted coup in Turkey in July 2015. The potatoes symbolize people, are an affordable food group, farmed and historically eaten by the poor and a fast food staple of Turkish life. Within the space, a selection of popular music was played according to mood and preference.

( detail ) Omun | 2014 | Plexiglas, video projection | Dimensions variable | The installation “Omun” abstracted an Icelandic landscape using plexiglas installed into the wall with a video projection of animated still life images of the same pieces of plexiglas in the same order as the spectrum of colors in a rainbow ROYGBIV.
B-15 | 2014 | Inflatable sculpture by Claire Ashley | Plexiglas, 3 video projections |Dimensions Variable | Ashley created this sculpture for the purpose of our collaboration basing it off the form of an iceberg. My interaction took the place of an intervention much like what I do in the landscape using plexiglas pieces with the addition of 3 video projections on top.
Pink, 2014 | Lighting Gels| Dimensions variable | The light installation “Pink” saturated the entry point to exhibition inviting viewers into the space with pink light preparing them for the experiential light and space nature of the exhibit. “Pink” also comes from the experience of the Icelandic midnight sun referencing the color it made at the lowest point.
