• Family Blanket
    2015

    The wind currents over the Atlantic Ocean are burned into my grandmother’s blanket,a blanket which has endured decades of small repairs as it got passed down through several generations. The edges of the blanket are cut away in a drawing of continental boundaries.

  • Wraith
    2012

    The Vertical Gallery at the Esther Massry Gallery at the College of St. Rose features a site-specific sculpture entitled “Wraith” created for this beautiful 27′ high atrium. “Wraith” is a translucent mountain hovering just above visitor’s heads. Clinging to it’s underside, like barnacles on a rock, is an upside-down, contemporary American landscape, in miniature, with an oil refinery, abandoned houses, mountains and bare trees.

    2007

    Revenant, 2007 #2 harvested plastic, 18’L x 7’H x 3’W Revenant was created for a two person exhibition with Zero Higashida, for the Bank of Japan in Hiroshima, one of the few buildings to survive the atomic blast. The 18 foot bridge has a dredging crane on one end, which is attached by looping chains to a McMansion on the other end.  A slum colony with a satellite dish clings to the underside of the McMansion. The bridge structure is based on the Forth Bridge, an innovation in engineering at the dawn of the 20th century.

  • Parallax
    2004

    Parallax, 2004 Video collaboration with Jane D. Marsching A collaboration between Ellen Driscoll and Jane D. Marsching. Clementine, an intrepid marionette, explores landscapes both historical and contemporary against a poetic backdrop of sound and text that describe an interior landscape of love lost. Her voyages take her down a mine shaft, into a domestic interior, and up and out to the surface of the moon and beyond to a vista of nebulae where she encounters dense black holes or voids, to which she is irresistibly drawn.
