Coat – Wool felt; dyed and undyed protein and cellulose fibers. Armature – steel pipe and wire.
It’s a perfect circle of life: As soil beautifully clothes the earth's mantle, soil also clothes us. Fibers used in clothing originate in the soil (directly or indirectly) and eventually become soil again. Earthly Coat encourages us to think about how we dress with “dirt” every day.

“1 in 10,000”
An outdoor installation at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
a jury-awarded installation for Tree-ology, an outdoor exhibition, April–October, 2008
“1 in 10,000” refers to the statistical fact that only 1 out of 10,000 acorns survives to become a tree. Using 100 gazing globes of various sizes, resting under a majestic oak, this exhibit reflected on the incredible odds of this tree’s existence and encouraged the viewer to see themselves as present in the life of the tree.
