Artist Statement

I am building a house around myself. I contribute to the surrounding space my interior architecture, transferring my sense of movement to the movement of physical material. The intimate space spreads outward systematically and geometrically, growing into structures and forms. It shoots off further than I can reach with my hands, hangs higher than where I can focus, dwells behind the reach of light.

My house is lightly and organically structured, drawn up with cloth, paper, wire, color, ink, water and wood. I use materials to loft trapping structures above and amongst the places where I live and work. I look to structures that are built by the very people living within, communing under their own roofs and shelters. I find patterns by which the possible construction and growth into an already existing landscape is realized.

I am interested in movement as: 1) the natural decay of structural material, 2) a landscape of growth and continuation, 3) light, 4) buoyancy, and 5) equilibrium.
