I am interested in how place is constructed and how the automobile mediates private and public space. The built environment that surrounds the autmobile plays a large role in my work; it is an example of the complex set of meanings that are attached to the landscape. Physical places exist in the mind as memory, history, identity, and myth. By existing in this way, these places get transformed into something other than what they are in their physical form.
