Filtration Test 3

Glass, lava rocks, petrified wood, pea gravel, jade gravel, charcoal, sand, 2018, 6"w x 6"h x 16"d

Filtration Test 2 and 3 are studies into different approaches to filtering water through the use of clear glass, rocks and metal. Within these tests, I utilize and juxtapose traditional vessel-making processes of glass and metal to leverage materiality to further examine larger issues of our abstracted impact on the environment. I deploy design methodologies in an attempt to “objectify” the objects that surround our everyday lives, whether systemic, infrastructural or utilitarian.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
