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 a tool to create internal divisions, paper as a means for communication and memory, 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.
