Breaking Codes
2011
eggshells, canvas, cloth, time
In this five hour performance, I tapped the names of God (from many different languages and religions) in Morse code using eggshells.

This piece arose from my distress and frustration with our all-too-human tendency toward conflict and violence, often in the name of a specific religious belief system... this despite the fact that most all spiritual practices encourage love and compassion.
