Artist Statement

I am interested in knowledge. Specifically how information is passed from one generation to the next. I use book-like forms as metaphor for the conduit of knowledge transference. I shape and transform these structures through the powerful and destructive elements of fire, water, and air. Construction and destruction of the pieces emphasize the brevity of their existence in an ever growing digital world. The amber-like preservation of the forms embody a new generationís view of our archaic forms of knowledge that are quickly being diluted into extinction.
