Sugar Boy

KATHERINE PARKER
Sugar Boy, micro-installation (sugar, paper, branches, video), 2005

Katherine Parker earned her BA in Studio Art and Art History from the University of California, Davis in 1995. She is currently pursuing an MFA at the University of Iowa with an emphasis in intermedia.

A piebald paper horse stands alone in a sugar-coated forest made of branches. Birds fly in an endless loop on the video screen behind him. The installation, set up behind a blacked-out window with two small peepholes in it, can only be viewed from the outside. This photo, however, shows what is normally hidden from the viewer's gaze.
