My work never feels as if it has edges; it is my way of pulling at a thread of experience, to let a hundred more threads come loose. I translate experiences from one form to another: sounds become drawings, sensations become images. The things that are lost and gained as something moves between states fascinates me, as does the new language spontaneously created in the spaces in-between.
Memory and time weave through my work. I think of memory and photography as arenas where remembering and forgetting compete to override each other. They are not truth or lies; they are processes that control context, they shift the edges of what is real by choosing what gets revealed and what is hidden. I like to pull apart that process and dig through the structures underneath.
