IF YOU BUILD IT, with No Longer Empty and Art in Flux,  includes one of my installations Location: NYC: Corner of 155th St. and St. Nicholas Avenue – C train takes you right there.  Thur – Fri. 3-7pm, Sat-Sun 12-6pm. July 25 – Aug. 10.  Press on NPR and The New York Times

THE UNWINDING DESTINY PROJECT Ula’s expanded art practice explores the intrinsic connection between destruction and creation.  The almost weightless humble materials employed in creating this site-aware installation consists of broken shells saved from all the eggs she’s consumed for more than 8 years. The shells are first soaked to release their inner membrane, ‘tattooed’ with text, and  arranged on a textured terrain of unwound tapes displaced from old cassettes.  The ongoing exploration is about time, consumption, the weight and fragility of words: direct, cryptic, or unspoken, to diminish and/or empower.  Over time messages we are exposed to become ‘imprints.’  What messages do we embrace, or challenge?   Language has limitations which often supersede our immediate affectivity of sensory and visceral experience, yet also has great potential to connect and reach us.  A shell alludes to both protection and limitation. The tapes reflect personal and cultural conditioned recordings looped in our mind. ©Ula Einstein 2014
