Material Witness: Art, Activism, and Fiber at Gallery 101 (Ottawa)  Aug 22-Oct 4, 2014. Artists Barry Ace, Karina Bergmans, Bozica Radenovic, Mona Sharma, and Emily Rose Michaud are "each occupying creative termini at the edges of fiber art. Each artist has followed the path of their artistic practice to an expression that is as logical to the heart as to the formal and aesthetic conversation of professional contemporary art practices." I created the piece  take a deep breath [breathe]  for Material Witness. This inflatable sculpture was created out of tyvek hazmat suits and inflated with an industrial air blower. For the installation, a printed bronchi transparency was projected from an overhead projector. This illuminated the work and developed the surface texture.     Canadian Art   review of Material Witness by Emily Falvey, October 17, 2014
