I've Been Everywhere, 2010
Music by Sunny and the Cowgirls
Comic humor, extreme exaggeration and a focus on popular culture have been integral to my work since the early 1990s'. “I’ve Been Everywhere” evolved from my Creative Capital project "Cowgirl Legend: Let ‘er Buck", a series of inflatable cowgirl sculptures.
Anticipating the potential of these moveable monuments I animated them as gigantic puppets creating a music video.
The inflatable cowgirl’s dream of a legendary life—is realized.
All Stories are True, 2009

It starts as a dance. The bull and the cowboy move together beginning to spin and roll. Slowly and then faster the dance becomes a trance, each participant wants something different. The cowboy, like Icarus wants to fly. His fate is always the same. Momentarily suspended, he seems in control of the wild for brief moments of time –before falling to earth. The seconds of being weightless expand…. Falling is predestined. The bull always escapes.
