Artist Statement

Streaming Pool is an interactive installation of clusters of wheel-thrown plates and bowls which contain speakers from which sounds of social interaction, nature, and art making come together to fill the space and to remind us of our everyday existence, the materiality of culture and ways in which we connect.
