I did a considerable amount of work today on a final installation piece for my friday class with Victoria May. For the last month or so, I’ve been chasing close to 1,000 marbles, collecting materials, and slowly working on each attribute of the piece. sewing, dying, bleaching, counting, measuring, ripping, tying rope and learning how to tie specific knots. today, I put them all together. I have some work to do just before it’s installed in the gallery, but right now, I’m not sure what to do with myself.


I don’t like this feeling — I feel like I’ve forgotten something, and I keep wondering if something will go wrong. Did I do that right? Should I do more? Should I have done less?

The overwhelming feeling that although I am close to done, I’ve lost my marbles.
