A SOLDIER IN THE PROCESS OF BECOMING A CIVILIAN

My transition from military to civilian life has been unstable, unpredictable, and in search of a new sense of purpose.  In this installation, I ask you to sit, to touch, to look, and to listen...

Domestic noises transition to military sounds of the past. A woodpecker transitions into machine gun fire. The sounds, which are heard when sitting in the chair, integrate memories into daily life.
