All the Places I’ve Never Been and Some I Have is part sculpture, part installation where the viewer must inhabit the one-person room to receive the full experience. The unexpected chime of the spoons coupled with the shimmering red satin offer a singular place of solitude. Those who have entered share that, once inside, they have a transcendent experience that ranges from quiet mediation and relaxation to a squeezing claustrophobia and exultant rebirth. The chosen materials recall the artist’s memories of receiving tokens from her father on his return from places she imagined visiting – memories that have fueled her quest in understanding how place and identity are tied together.
