FLUCTUATION // CONFLAGRATION

San Rafael, California | 2023

Multimedia installation comprised of fabric, wood, charcoal, wind, and sound (by Imogen Mason)   |   10 x 10 x 8 feet

An extension of Auto-da-fé, reimagined for the EmberStomp Wildfire Prevention Festival in Marin County on May 20, 2023, this fire-themed immersive installation harnesses the power of the rapidly shifting wind currents that sweep through the Marin County Fairgrounds to visually depict the immediacy with which the spread of wildfire can change direction. Using lightweight, translucent gauze fabrics paired with the charred remains of campfires harvested from the fire pits at Ocean Beach, San Francisco, and the audio piece developed by Imogen Mason for Auto-da-fé, Fluctuation//Conflagration invites viewers to walk through the flames in a visceral experience of the elements.

AUTO-DA-FÉ

Taos, New Mexico | 2023

Multimedia installation comprised of storm-felled elm branch, cotton and wool fibers, tulle fabric, charcoal, light, video projection, and sound (by Imogen Mason)   |   10 x 6 x 10 feet

Borrowing motifs from both pagan and Christian lore, this installation was presented in an abandoned adobe chapel in Taos, NM over Easter weekend 2023. Fittingly developed leading up to the vernal equinox, the work utilizes projections to play with the balance between light and dark, themes which, in the context of the Christian holiday, are often read in terms of good and bad. The work is primarily composed of the storm-felled limb of a Siberian elm tree, a species that is considered highly invasive and yet adds such beauty to the otherwise dry brush desert landscape in this region. Below it, charcoal gathered from this winter’s routine brush burning speaks to the degradation of the native habitat as such invasive species take over. As a symbol of emergent spring, this piece pulls together all of these contrasting elements to examine the complexity of natural systems and humanity’s relationship to them.

WINDOWS ON EDEN

Ballinasloe, Galway, Ireland | 2022

Installation comprised of raw cotton string and fallen oak branches framing a view of woodland landscape   |   15 x 15 x 3 feet

Created as part of a series of land-based sculptures developed during my one-month residency in rural County Galway, Ireland, in September 2022, this entirely biodegradable installation is set within a corridor between a tract of privately-owned farmland left wild and government-managed forestry land - a sort of interstitial no-man's-land that marks a stark contrast between the wildness of old-growth deciduous woodland and the newer monoculture of the evergreen plantation. By collecting fallen branches from the forest floor and lashing them together with string, I created a portal that frames the point where these two distinct versions of "nature" meet and co-mingle as they march side-by-side into the horizon. Placing them both within the same frame creates a dialogue between old and new, wild and worked, organic growth and purpose-driven cultivation.

HALL OF RAINBOWS

Ballinasloe, Galway, Ireland | 2022

Installation comprised of colored cotton string and live tree branches in a natural tunnel   |   10 x 6 x 30 feet

Inspired by the dappled light pouring through the canopy of this overgrown woodland path in eastern County Galway, Hall of Rainbows was my attempt to recreate the feeling of a stained glass window using only natural fiber and the existing infrastructure provided by the trees growing here. As the light reflects off the string, it catches the color and creates a surprising moment of focus within the lush green surrounds. Moving through the tunnel, the “panes” of this composition become fractured, breaking off into their own individual compositions along the path. In creating this piece, I befriended many critters, including spiders who have woven their own webs within the openings, and crawling insects who have used the pathways between branches as a sort of short cut in their journeys

TOTEM AT THE TIDEWATER

Solomons, Maryland | 2022

Sculpture comprised of cotton rope, mixed natural fibers, botanical dyes, copper fittings, steel tube and rebar | 12 x 6 x 4 feet

Held in the permanent collection of Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Art Center in Solomons, Maryland, Totem at the Tidewater was created during the summer of 2022 as part of the institution's Artist in Residence program to engage the public in a dialogue about art in nature. This work bridges themes of community and ecological responsibility while standing as a testament to the diversity of the protected Tidewater bioregion. With an intention to let the work evolve with the ecosystem over time, the hope is that this mostly biodegradable sculpture will come to serve as habitat for birds, insects, lichen, and other such members of the woodland ecosystem, while serving as an example for the humans who encounter it to think more deeply about how art can exist not just within but as part of the landscape

WAVEBREAK

2020

Sculpture comprised of hand-dyed cotton rope, zinc-plated sash cord, monofilament | 20 x 6 x 10 feet


Inspired by the dramatic meeting of the Pacific Ocean and the rugged California coastline, this ceiling-mounted feature installation was developed for the 40-foot lobby atrium of Rivian Automotive's SoCal headquarters. Over 3,000 feet of hand-dyed organic cotton rope is suspended from lengths of shimmering silver chain to create a moment of impact that floats within the semicircular space.

FORÊT MOIRÉ

Culver City, California | 2020

Architecturally-integrated installation comprised of cotton rope, carbon chain | 20 x 40 x 12 feet

This architecturally-integrated rope installation carves out a dramatic lounge space within a converted warehouse for Amazon Studios’ video production headquarters in Culver City. Playing on the garment industry history of this space, flexible chain link creates a curved anchor point system, evoking the form of a zipper and giving this piece an amorphous form. The rope threads through the links, creating a moiré effect as you move through the space.

DARK // LIGHT

New York, New York | 2020

Architecturally-integrated installation comprised of hand-painted cotton rope and stairwell | 17 x 20 x 30 feet

Art consultancy Building180 commissioned rope artist Annie Tull to install this hand-painted black-and-white ombré stair enclosure for Twitch’s new Manhattan headquarters. Fifteen thousand linear feet of half-inch thick organic cotton rope wraps steel bars at floor and ceiling in a seemingly continuous length. Variations in density serve to obscure particular viewpoints within the office while capturing the frenetic energy of the city that never sleeps.

ALL THAT GLITTERS

Los Angeles, California | 2020

Architecturally-integrated installation comprised of hand-painted cotton rope and stairwell | 17 x 20 x 30 feet

The design of this entryway screening feature takes inspiration from the classic klieg lights of Old Hollywood while adding a graceful touch of glitz and glamour to the refined interior by Negin Bassam of PERS Development. Three layers of spaghetti-strap thin metallic gold paracord shimmer like the heat of a Los Angeles summer day and evoke the golden glow of all that this city is made of.

TRANSITIVE PEACE

Orinda, California | 2020

Custom screening wall comprised of cotton rope and steel tube | 18 x 1 x 6 feet

PROCESSION

San Francisco, California | 2019

Custom screening panels comprised of wood frames, wool, cotton and hemp yarns, with leather accents | 9 panels, 4 x 8 ft ea

INTO THE ETHER

Berkeley, California | 2018

Mural comprised of wool yarn | 18 x 8 feet

This wall-based installation at luxury mattress store Essentia in Berkeley began with the meticulous planning of an array of points in CAD software to explore how lines, when crossed at precise intervals, begin to create curvilinear shapes. Three layers of flat-laid wool yarn wrapped around pin nails tapped into the drywall suggest depth and movement as they lull you into an ethereal dreamspace that is equal parts real and imagined.

THE NEXT LEVEL

Oakland, California | 2017

Architecturally-integrated installation comprised of 14mm paracord | 4,500 sf

Annie Tull's debut rope installation for Enlisted’s Bay Area headquarters takes its cue from the lightning energy of the design team itself. In the street-level lobby, vintage vitrines display bundles of brightly colored cord that shoot upward to form a cathedral ceiling before emerging in the second-floor open office, where they twist and turn under concrete beams and above rows of desks, connecting the various work areas as a physical metaphor for the collaborative design process.
