Ellen Phillips

Ellen Phillips, a local artist, presents an installation here that suggests just how empty profuse sound can be. Her Bridging No. 8 combines wire, sand, rocks, nails, plastic cups and forks, messages written on strips of clear plastic, artificial flowers and chain link fencing in an effort to communicate a sense of coming together, of touching and communication itself. Assemblages of these materials intersect in a central cross on the floor, which is covered with dark plastic sheeting.
