Artist Statement
The graphite drawings on thousands of vellum-like balls are a series of repetitive movements that track my nervous system. I am interested in the combination of mapping my system and seeing how my images change throughout the day according to my insides. My energy changes from moment to moment and the jagged and jittery lines are a reaction to those changes. The balls are contained in stationary and moveable boxes. The moveable boxes are an installation of the balls continually changing the layout of the drawings.
