During a residency at Duke University I created And Some Are Hidden in Plain Sight along with a professor and group of 15 first-year students.  Through exploring our own relationships to Failure, we identified an imbalance: that some failures are celebrated in society today as the engine of creativity while others we feel we must keep to ourselves, often hidden from even our closest confidants.  We collaboratively built an outdoor environment that laid bare this disparity and allowed invited guests and passers by to engage with their own experiences of failure, from both ends of the spectrum. The temporary outdoor structure made of trees, hammocks, buckets, industrial plastic wrap, wire frames, recycled note paper and tape, the installation included a crowd-sourced gallery displaying declarations of personal failures and a “Declaration Station” in the corner of the space to create their own failure confession and to add it to the walls of this anonymous and evolving gallery.
