Best Art Installation 

NANCY FLOYD's Weathering Time at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center offered a poignant memorial of her old Texas home place and also a poetic revisitation of self. The Georgia State photography professor created a powerful evocation of the fragile underpinnings of the past with an entire room constructed of a delicate popsicle stick floor. This substitute "home" featured large photographs of the artist's childhood Texas home, which could be seen in various states of decay before its final demolition. In an accompanying "slide show," Floyd documented her changing appearance and attire as she also aged within the walls of her family home. This layered, ambitious work plumbed the emotional significance of home to a family's history and the difficult separation from a womb-like home into the larger world.
