This Continual Breaking
This ongoing series (currently on hiatus but to be re-explored soon) investigates aspects of temporality, fragility, and structure. I am particularly interested in the relationship of five main materials: ice, glass, paper, plaster, and steel. Together, these materials have a language among them that I am constantly trying to decipher. Here, these materials are assembled and utilized to relate to modern human architecture and related housing systems; steel as structure and support, glass for light, transparency, and visibility, plaster as support and divisions, paper as communication, and ice to represent time and human necessity.
In creating unique installations or site-specific objects that interact with the environment or operate around a time-based element, such as ice, I explore chance happenings and unique relationships that make themselves visible through overlapping sounds, reflection, and time spent in a given space. Afterwords, these objects or installations are captured in print through the use of photography, video/video stills, or through abstract drawing and collage.
