Working collaboratively with my materials, I manipulate objects and situations, shifting their contingent boundaries. I work loosely within operative logics, pushing them into unexpected iterations. I disrupt and remake in order to reveal the shifting flow beneath statically inscribed meaning’the space of becoming where we form objects and objects form us.
As I work, I listen for unexpected possibilities and look for resonant intersections. My best results are always surprises’appearing unbidden out of the deadening accumulation of known operations toward foreseeable ends. Patience is some of it, a little is luck, but mostly it is being able to remain receptive and un-judging.
The “meaning” of my works does not lie discreetly within their physical boundaries. Rather, it is spread across the constellation of relationships they engage, the threads connecting them, and the flows of force that each reveals like a stick in a stream. Each work adds to every other and to the web of understanding draped between them: act-to-act, idea-to-idea.
