Big Women
1998
Weisman Art Museum-commissioned installation, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Three hours a night, July 11-13, Collaboration with Siddiqi Ray,

Using eight computer-driven projectors on the lawn of the University of Minnesota’s Weisman Museum, I projected a 20-minute looped slide sequence of 24-foot-tall women made of light. The models turned cartwheels, dived off the top of the museum, and clambered around the complicated aluminum facade of the eccentric Frank Gehry building. In playing over the building’s surface, the female forms were also playing with the boundary between inside and outside the museum, coming to life at night and enjoying themselves as free subjects, not art objects.
