Pocket Lady: You Only Have One Chance
Holding Patterns: Objects in Action
, 2000
Rule Gallery - Denver, CO

A counterpoint to the objects in the Holding Patterns show was “Pocket Lady,” a performance that occurred during the opening.  40 people were allowed to choose and reach into it one pocket of an anonymous woman’s red velvet dress.  This intrusion into the space of a stranger, something rarely allowed, briefly breached the common barrier between desire and distance. The dress with its hidden recesses and objects--each of which related to the theme of holding patterns--was a tactile sculpture on this single evening.
