CON·VEY·ANCE

                                     kənˈvāəns/
noun

1.  the action or process of transporting someone or something from one place to another

A pallet in the process of becoming a chair, 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. Seemingly meaningless moments can trigger a past even.
