My work is based on the spiritual residue and shared memories that are left behind by the built symbols of our presence on Earth. Telephone poles, railroad tracks, stairways, and buildings are shared across generations. I am interested in what is remembered and forgotten as these symbols occupy the spaces we create and the spaces in between which have been created unintentionally. Thousands of people walk by and through these spaces, each an individual with their own experiences. In the same room where an old couple repeats words of love, a young man once passed away. These shared spaces and histories are the focus of my work.
