takes great pleasure in encouraging others to "get
with art. Feel it, make it, enjoy it. Granted,
this could pose a problem if done in the wrong environment
(or museum) but when the opportunity provides itself - go
for it. Below are some interactive pieces that
Eastridge has displayed, in addition to her
following pieces are
for purchase, but are displayed for portfolio purposes only.

stair pillows were custom-made for the entry
stairway of the former Art Academy of Cincinnati Mt.
Adams building. Each of the long stairs was
covered with a translucent pillow sewn out of brown
tulle. Each was then filled with crushed corn.
Everyone who entered was encouraged to taken their
shoes off and enjoy the therapeutic experience of
climbing the ever-shifting waves of grain.
Unfortunately, the Cincinnati Fire Marshall was called
on Eastridge and it had to be uninstalled the
following day because it was deemed a safety hazard.
Just one of the "issues" one runs up against at
times. Even though it was brief, it was
thoroughly enjoyed by the tired feet of many faculty
members and students. It also intimidated
others, who walked all the way around to the side of
the building so as to avoid any new experience.
Eastridge is sorry for their loss.
