My research and art making is formally centered around water - as a model for a complex system of relationships, and as a formal device, to explore ideas of perception, science and technology, light, transparency, duration, frequency, containment, memory, fluidity, and the human condition. How we form our stories and how our actions affect the ever-taxed bio-system. I am building a ‘liquid map’ to mark my own process and evolution specifically, and to articulate systems thinking in general. Each sculpture, drawing, photograph, video and installation, acts not only as a mnemonic device, but also as an individual component of a larger structure and study, as I assemble a body of work that covers an increasing range of contexts.
