On the one hand, I act as archivist and archeologist, an analyst of objecthood, transforming clothing, tools, household goods, texts and the sub-narratives they hold into closely observed installations, public interactions and discrete objects. On the other hand, I am an abstractionist, an interloper, who does not attempt to facilitate literal understanding, and at times obstructs it so that we can move from factual certainty to territories within phenomenological insight.

The series, Volatiles and Solids, 2014, began as an exploration of obsolescence in tools that functioned for someone over a short or long period, then were discarded. Wizened through the process of casting them in glass, each object, taken out of the constant turnover of new consumer objects, allows time to lapse.
