i’ve been trying to reach you
tulle, stones, sandpaper, ink, phone cord, paper, thread

This interactive installation was created in residency at Flathead Lake Biological Station. Visitors are invited to take a stone from the outside pockets, enter the booth, place the stone in the cup and add their words to the “phonebook” provided. The book’s prompt reads: what do you do when you feel far from home? How do we reach for connection and ritual when we feel lost in space? This work sends out missives, each answer like a tinny voice, traveling through the line.
