Beginning with a single formative memory and expanding through the rigors of craft and repetition, each piece ends as it was begun—- a meditation on a single moment as it is imperfectly remembered. I start with simple materials (wood, metal, plastic, paper, found objects) and common signifiers (photographs, maps, schematics and other artifacts of memory and travel), in the process creating a framework. At the core of each structure is a spare display of information, often alluding to the perceived utility of that which is otherwise obscured, hidden, or inaccessible. Like a closed book or a folded map, each piece is at once a static object, but with the implied promise of function. Aspects of architecture, geography, and landscape are referenced throughout and offer both a personal and shared terrain.
