I am interested in contradiction: in shelters whose structures and integrity depend on their own broken backs as foundation. I believe that vision can be obtained through facing formidable circumstance. For that reason, I facilitate a full cycle of collapse and construction in each of my works. This process makes my sculptures palimpsestic. That reference to their history is their chance at seeming alive. While the zeitgeist I attempt to capture is doom-laden, my works maintain optimism. What goes down, must come up.
