"Cone Wall," activated here in an interactive installation exhibit called "Accidentally Perfect," at Ed Video Media Arts Centre, curated by Sophia Zheshui Lin. Pinecones, removed from the wall and soaked in water before being returned to the wall, close and reveal a pixelated drawing, which then gradually disappears as the cones dry and expand back to their naturally acclimatized state. The whole process for each drawing takes a day or two (2010). In this clip, four separate sequential patterns were made and have been repeated to loop five times.

I spent the impetuousness of my twenties in love. In love with a man, sure, but also in love with a woman named Rosie who taught me how to present a bottle of wine like a boss. In love with my elderly landlords, war survivors, who showed me how loud love can be, and how to weave story out of the scraps of love. In love with a small boy I used to nanny, who was happiest with his head on my stomach and his thumb in his mouth. In love with Mara from Italy who wet her pants when she was excited and kissed me on the lips and took me to meet her cousins—brawny, tender boys with whom I also fell in love. I fell in love with professors and baristas and truck drivers and hotel clerks. Once, I fell in love with a customer service representative in Iowa over the phone. I fell in love with trash and wind and trailer parks nestled brightly on the beaches of Florida. I fell in love with the blinding kitsch of America and stared full-faced, as if at the sun. I fell in love with other people’s children and the holy mystery of the working miniature. (I think of my father worrying his model sailboats in the evenings, their tiny masts thin as toothpicks, the marvel of their stamp-sized sails catching his breath. Did he imagine himself an inch high, roaming the planks, or instead the benevolent creator, omniscient and good?) I fell for Renaissance art and Belgian beer. I fell so hard for tomato juice one summer I drank until my gums bled. I ate raw kale until it hurt.
