Artist Statement
My work involves the re-arrangement of the materials and temporal qualities of a given site and is often developed on the basis of fictional scenarios that are sometimes defined in collaboration with groups of people who bring different expertise and experiences to the project. The works take up various forms and formats sometimes resulting in an accumulation of objects such as discarded architectural models, pre-fabricated materials, text, light sources, drawings, lighting gels, Xeroxes, or they may be a series of events, performances or actions within a space.
