Artist Statement
My work responds to perceptual, social and spatial disruptions within existing common site conditions. Through shifted normatives, reveals of decay, and dislodged physical prescriptions, I create new codifications by exposing altered relationships within the landscape of the everyday. I draw upon the use of letterforms, familiar objects, and lines to re-present and shape an architectural language that communicates between the structure and reader. To heighten an awareness of overlooked networks within the built environment, I explore commonalities within the public realm through shifts in translation, material and readability. By displacing and re-aligning encrypted systems, I aim to expose and decipher a language that renders conventions legible through the deconstruction and reorganization of the unnoticed.
