Tumbleweed (as witness), 2015.

Tumbleweed is a process piece that bares witness to a relationship. Intermittently and over very many months, the silk mohair is crocheted and intertwined with human hair.  The hair from one man; head hair, facial hair, underarm hair, pubic and chest hair along with the hair from one woman; head hair, underarm and pubic hair. Initially all of the hairs, whether curly, straight, smooth, short or wiry were capriciously combined and interlaced into the mix. But as time passed and the process went on, the silk mohair would/could only tangle with the hairs of the woman.

Stepping the Steps (along a found blue line), 2015

A blue line trailed down and then up the steps of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina SofĂ­a in Madrid. It seemed natural to trace and step the steps..........

Sharing Romance (Casablanca 'bits'), 2003

I re.discovered "Sharing Romance" recently while trawling through some old files. I believe it is still relevant in the pinkest sense.

Sharing Romance (Casablanca 'bits'), 2003 by Lisa Z. Morgan

“Sharing Romance (Casablanca 'bits)” is a visual pattern generated by the movie Casablanca as it was experienced by 1,500 people around the world on one day in 2003. The sequence demonstrates how the download of Casablanca caught and entered one part of the movie and mapped the copying that took place by accessing ‘bits’ of the film as it was shared. As each piece was copied, it became possible for others to access immediately that section of the download. Thus the behavior is likened to a swarm. In this space/place ‘ownership’ no longer exists and has neither use nor meaning.
The original film of Casablanca took 8 hours to download but this 'film' maps the first 10 minutes of the download and is then time lapsed down to a minute and a half. The fluttering/flickering pink-ness becomes far more prominent in real time.
