At the root of my art lies a fascination with the emotional, psychological, and cultural implications of place. I am fascinated by the human ability to both manipulate and be manipulated by an environment, and I revel in the often confusing and multifarious mismatches of meanings and associations that cling to particular places. From interactive sculptures to images of Western landscapes constructed from fragments of cultural debris, my work explores the dynamics that emerge from the interstices where people and place collide.
