I am an interdisciplinary artist working primarily in video, sculpture and performance. My work revolves around the incongruities of the physical and the metaphysical. Like Kierkegaard, I am interested in the absurdity of faith. I agree with Thoreau when he wrote, “Decayed literature makes the richest of soil,” and draw much of my inspiration from writers of the past.
I use a variety of materials in a process that can only be described as tinkering. I make very intuitive decisions in the studio that explore the limitations of materials while seeking a new voice in them. Like the man in Annie Dillard’s essay, I try to teach stones to talk.
The work is often ephemeral or process driven which allows me to rely on documentation in order that the work is given a context. I think of the documentation as a method of creating a new situation. I use documentation to create new situations to contemplate.
I am a reader who does not know how to write.
