Process of Digestion 1990

96” x 60” x 96”

2 chickens, wood, steel, rocks, hay and feed.

This installation was with Frontage Gallery, a temporary alternative window space sponsored by the Santa Brarbara Arts Council in California. The hanging sculpture on the left moved along a track on the ceiling. The top was filled with rocks, the middle water and the bottom with chicken feed. Everyday I would go down to the space and pull this
3 layered figure along the track, letting feed out into the trough for the chickens to eat. On the back wall hung the “chicken menu:” corn, sunflower seeds, and chicken mash. The piece evolved from thinking about the transformative and consumptive power of organic materials and processes.
