Sugar Spit Balls 1991 -1996

sculpture/video performance: sugar, spit, table with a spinning motor mounted inside.

During the opening of the exhibition I sat on a stool and made the sugar spit balls. I would first spit into the palm of my hand and then add a bit of sugar and slowly roll the two together until the sugar was dissolved into the spit and I would add more sugar. Each ball would be finished when the balance of sugar and spit became solid enough to hold between two fingers. Once completed the ball was placed on the table. The table slowly rocked back and forth, mimicking the gesture that I was doing with my hand to create the balls.
