Joe Tunis' (joe+n) Uprooted is a zen-like "performance" of bamboo reeds in oak frames that are screwed through onto a thick, vertical piece of paduak wood flanked on each side by floor-to-ceiling strips of brown paper with latex paint marks. It looks like a painter used the paper as a drop cloth. This works well with the very structured bamboo units in creating a tension between the highly constructed and the serendipitous. The piece just might be the strongest in the exhibition, although it lacks the edginess and rawness of Tunis' sound installations, which are not represented
