About The Artwork

It is important to view the video documentation of this artwork. Please copy and paste this link to view on Vimeo: This sculpture is built with motors, electronics, and mechanical components. It plugs in, moves, and makes sound. Little Battle (Wolf Carousel) is a mechanical sculpture that mimics a toy-like, useless machine, repeatedly spinning and droning in and out of distinction. Two wolves, hand-sculpted and cast by the artist, are mounted into brass bars over a spinning acrylic disc. The rest of the sculpture is built from disparate parts from an 8mm film projector, music box, motors, and other components. DeFelice first built it in 2011. This version was very slapdash. She then modified it in 2014, creating an updated version or a "part 2". Based on the Cherokee Legend, "Two Wolves", the piece serves as a belittled (or even parodical) interpretation of the ongoing conflict between good and evil.

I am a visual artist living and working between New York City and artist residencies. My work uses various media, referencing concepts and concerns over my own interpretations of the world. This can take the form of a dreamlike or simulated version of experiences, or a replay of something seen or heard. I’m influenced by places, instances, and the way we think about information as we receive it through both traditional and alternative methods. I find today's discourse violent and destructive and I am frightened by how that discourse conditions our perceptions. The subjects I incorporate into visual artworks get at this in roundabout ways. These can be objects or images that come off as noisy, repetitive, or unsettling. They can also be dark, weird, and problematic. I do enjoy referencing problems and behavior, and our relationship to technology. Specifically what the digital does to the physical, and the interplay between these two realities.
