Abstract

My works hint at the co-existence of the mundane and the cosmological where two realities simultaneously exist including the possibility that the past is also present.  The structures are diagrams of thought that provide a glimpse of the strangeness beyond the every day world; opening a place where thought becomes tangible, history leaves a trace, and information exhales form.  Physical sensation and perception are interdependent and I sometimes wonder if what I am seeing is an indication of something outside of what I know or a sudden awareness of the blood vessels coursing through my eyes.  Material can never fully communicate thought, which makes these elaborate constructions more poignant in their attempt than they would ever be in their articulateness.

“And besides, the central problem-the enumeration, even partial enumeration of infinity-is irresolvable.  In that unbounded moment, I saw millions of delightful and horrible acts, none amazed me so much as the fact that all occupied the same point, without superimposition and without transparency.  What my eyes saw was simultaneous; what I shall write is successive, because language is successive.  Something of it though, I will capture.”

The Aleph , Jorge Luis Borges

What was any art but an effort to make a sheath, a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining, elusive element which is life itself — life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose?

Song of the Lark , Willa Cather
