My current work addresses the human dependence on structure and our denial of its impermanence.  To construct the ephemeral into a state that appears to hold permanence initiates a reevaluation of the tangible and intangible structures we build: is it more or less valuable that a structure will not last?

I am interested in how exterior and interior are defined by line and how we engage within that threshold.  Through installation I attempt to steer our perceptual understanding of a place by adjusting the ways in which we might orient ourselves within a site. This allows for the condition of structure and space to be measured or heightened, revealing a shift within our awareness.
