I form poetry. I use the word “AND” as a mode of expression and a structural tool for creating multiple dimensions in geometric and oblique forms. I believe “AND” is the most significant thing I can say to the world without imposing my ideas on people. For me, “AND” is a philosophy that is based on the experience of change as continuum, revolution, and drift.

I think of this body of work as reductive poetry that is at once accessible and resistant to the dialectic nature of communication. Through processes of repetition, overlap, magnification, and distortion, I investigate the nature of form and language as constructions of dimension.
