It’s a ways off, but I’m thrilled to announce that my sound installation GLASS HEART (BELLS FOR SYLVIA PLATH) (2013) will be featured at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. in 2017-18, as part of a “One Life” series profile of Sylvia Plath curated by Dorothy Moss.

I just had a wonderfully productive trip to D.C., during which I toured the gallery where the show will be held, met and spoke to the technical staff, and enjoyed a series of fascinating conversations about Plath with curator Dorothy Moss, who has many brilliant plans for the show. I am honored beyond measure that my piece will get to share an intimate physical space with many of Plath’s personal effects, especially since my sculpture was created in the spirit of conjuring the spiritual, musical energy I feel in Plath’s writing through visual objects that to me are so reminiscent of her legacy: bell jars.
