Artist Statement

My work is about representing the circumstances of decay by constructing ephemeral analogs of durable structures.These sculptural bodies are enacted upon by both natural elements and audience; their disrepair documented by time-lapse and video.The sculptures often employ skewed perspectives and disproportionate relationships to challenge the body's perception of the objects/idea.Watching a thing fall apart brings closer to mind its construction, disclosing the normally concealed conditions of production.This transformation/decomposition allows us to reconceive and observe how objects evolve, settle and wither over time, participating in processes that would normally go unnoticed.
