Plans , blueprints and styrene foam, 12'x15'x5', 2005

In art and in engineering, the act of making is the process of wishful thinking made manifest. When we build, we seek to bridge the gap between aspiration and attainment, exploring a transitional zone between the tactile and the transcendent. Blueprints represent for me an archetype of ‘plans’ in the broader sense: a statement of intention, with infinite potential but no actual existence. The white lines convey information, but also stand as absence: blank unprinted paper in the interstices of the encompassing blue.
