Intonations is a site-specific installation that illuminates the fleeting moment between thought and expression, when potential holds power. Chalk is a stone synonymous with language; bound up in crumbling cliffs words ripen, ready to spill onto walls, paper, pavement. Working on an intimate scale, I am interested in the relationship between people and objects. Drawing the viewer to examine details, sharpened tips of wands poised for action in a moment. Suspended utterances await expression.
