Artist Statement

An interface between our natural and constructed environments, architectural systems are the embodiment of cultural identity and the physical manifestation of collective ideology. My spatial interventions raise awareness of subjective, objective, and physiological experiences as the viewer relates to a given object or space. I also explore the notion of aura as it applies to the demolition of iconic structures. Displaced from their original context, preserved fragments serve as material witnesses to the transformative and accumulative history of the built.
