#TBT I love sketching a moment as fast as I can to capture details before they disappear. Draw something today to see it in a new light. #sketchbook

Slowly revealing these 3D printed symbols is so satisfying. #pressplay #3dprinting #artandlanguage

Experimenting taking flat graphic signs and symbols and giving them dimensionality
and weight using 3d printing. Do you recognize this one?

The invention of graphic symbols is one of the cornerstones of what it means to be human and it’s the precursor to all human art and language. I’m keeping these in my window to stay inspired by the deep history of rock art and what were our first meaningful marks.

My studio windows are taking on some ancient influence as I explore these symbols found in the earliest human communications. #studiopolaroid

Sometimes you just have to lose yourself in a book. See what I am reading this week in stories...

This week’s #femaleartistfriday is Mierle Laderman Ukeles. Beginning in 1979, Ukeles spent a year visiting each of the NY Dept of Sanitation’s districts to shake the hand of every worker who would accept the gesture (~8500 in total). More in stories👀. 📷 Robin Holland

#tbt A big thank you to the hundreds of people who came out in the actual rain to share #DallasAurora with us. I can’t get enough of these faces from our #FreezingRain photo booth. Check out stories for more of my favorites.

We had so much fun making #FreezingRain come to life for the Aurora Biennial in Dallas, TX. #pressplay

Freezing Rain (dichroic), 2018. Where should this pop-up next? #freezingrain

#BTS Thousands of reflective raindrops were cut for #FreezingRain at @dallasaurora in Texas this fall. Arranging each strand in the studio to make sheets of falling rain is my favorite part.
