Over the past ten years I have used research methods and a visual language often used by urban planners, historical preservationists, and architects to explore how people interact with their environment. These methods have helped me interpret and record the many ways people use the world and each other. I some of my past artworks I have explored the interactions of environmental, cultural, and economic systems, using a rigorous study of community maps, historic records, and satellite imagery. Through this process I attempt to picture how an environment relates to its culture. In my current artworks I continue to explore an interest in environment, culture, economy, and design, but focus on how these factors affect people’s ability to see, experience, and comprehend their reality.
