I spent a year sewing tents and making drawings, prints, and videos about them. The tents lived in a little patch of woods with a creek from winter through spring where they were exposed to natural elements. They then migrated across the school campus over ten days, ending their journey at the museum, where they were reanimated with fans and an accompanying video.

Transient Conditions, DVD, 32:26 min., edition of 10
Tents, wood and canvas, variable edition of 15

FYI, two tents are in the collection of Bruno David. I bet he'd sell them if want some human-sized, weathered tent sculptures in your life. The rest have been destroyed.
