Installation art - From Wikipedia Installation art is an artistic genre of three-dimensional works that are often site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space. Generally, the term is applied to interior spaces, whereas exterior interventions are often called public art, land art or intervention art; however, the boundaries between these terms overlap.

Slide7:

about me I was born in 1967 in Eugene, Oregon to very creative parents who were always using their minds and hands to organize fun group events and projects. Some of my favorite early projects were the collaborative dollhouses they made together for me and my brother every Christmas of my childhood. The best one was the haunted house, which had working trap doors, a hand-painted oriental rug, secret passageways in the fireplaces, and ghostly images in the windows made from old glass negatives they found in the garage of our centenarian farmhouse.

COOL FACT: Pfieifer said, “I am related through my mother to ex-pat painter  Mary Cassatt , so fine art was also a big part of my upbringing. As a child, I was fascinated by everything from the jungle paintings of  Henri Rousseau  and  Picasso's abstractions  to the more commercial talents like  Sister Mary Corita ,  Peter Max , and  Norman Rockwell .” Click here to read the following American Craft Magazine feature article from December/January 2014

Love Tooth 2000 exhibited in the NW Biennial, Tacoma Art Museum 2001 Love Tooth is a piece I refer to as a “sculptural bouquet." I see it as an exercise in portraiture, looking back to my original installation and presentation of these sculptures, titled  Kharshouf , which was a self-portrait. My bouquets take their forms from a bouquet of flowers, where there are multiples of several different units that make up the entire composition. This wall installation is about 18 inches in diameter and 8 inches deep. This piece is a portrait of an emotion or proclivity. “Love Tooth” is a term which used to be applied to someone who has a tendency to fall in love easily, just as one might have a sweet tooth.

Slide10:

Like  Love Tooth , this is another in my series of wall-mounted bouquet forms. This piece, entitled  May  evokes both a time of year and a state of mind....I may or I may not...... This wall installation is about 18 inches by 16 inches, and 8 inches deep . It includes several repeated elements and a few one of a kind pieces to make up the bouquet.

' sWarm Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA, 2006 Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland, OR, 2007  Statement: Every year the Lovebugs swarm. It’s their mating process–traveling in a giant mass of writhing pheromones. In recent decades, as their native habitat in the forests has been depleted, the Lovebugs have migrated toward the roadways to act out their seasonal ritual. They are drawn to the scent of automobile exhaust fumes, which chemically replicates the odor produced by the female insect to attract their male counterparts and alert them of their fertility. Quite often, individuals in a swarm are randomly looping, spiraling, or corkscrewing around in a dizzying search for their mates, rather than following a linear flightplan . This project was featured in the  Boston Globe , the Oregonian by DK Row , and in  1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse  by Garth Johnson.
