My current body of work explores the passage of time and the fragmentation of memory during the moment of perceiving. In each moment hundreds of small gestures are expressed, motions taken, words spoken, sounds heard, and images recorded. I use the impression of these moments by condensing, grouping, double exposing and blurring images and found objects and thus have constructed a more fluid and emotionally charged interpretation of passing time. By presenting a fuller and more abstract recording of perception and emotion my work captures the wonder, confusion and fullness of the whole moment.
My work begins in a specific location gathering fragments of sound, image, smell and emotional response to environment and space. I collect and accumulate many images and found objects based on time spent in a specific location. From this collection process I make a series works that include artistsí books, digital prints, c-prints, light boxes, installations and sculpture. This process of working through an idea is similar to alchemy as I let the work and my research guide me.
