Fuller Projects is a small space on the campus of Indiana University dedicated to experimental work with exhibitions lasting only one night. I decided to create an installation comprised of small cast objects, paintings and sculptural elements entitled Ascension by Infiltration, an 18th century term that was coined to describe an outdated theory of how water travels through mineral deposits.
The work exhibited at Fuller Projects was the continuation of the body of work that was created for my solo show at Kunstraum Gruenerhund in Berlin the previous summer. The show provided me the opportunity to physically carry out the installation of the paintings and cast objects together. I knew that I did not want them to be separate ideas, they followed the same thread of thought, but until then it had been unclear how to actually make them work together. The Fuller Projects show gave me the opportunity to understand how the pieces related to one another in concrete terms a relationship that I continue to investigate today.
