An installation created for Proximity, In Search of Signs of Life and Art, which was a series of pop-up installations and interventions through out the city of Buffalo, NY organized and curated by Resource Art during the height of the 2020 COVID-19 lock down. The escape from the confines of the "inside" for the expansiveness of the "outside" felt to be a communal desire during this time... The extremely altered and slow pace of time in quarantine as well as the overwhelming urge to leave isolation led me to create one hundred snail surrogates who tight rope walked their way from my house to the tree out front and dissipating into the world spreading ever farther into the city as watched from my window with envy.
