Commit You to Memory

Cast Iron

I create evidence that serves as proof that events happened and what I felt was real. Works act as a bookmark in time and space, saving a place that I can come back to. They become an amplification of my insignificant moments and a narration of monumental ones. My present tense is, therefore, a reaction to my past. My internal rebuttal is an incessant search for stability in a constantly evolving future.

I am interested in the physical and intangible links that bind two individuals together: what connects Point A to Point B. Works are an investigation of giving form to communication, through time-consuming and/or repetitive labor. With this current propensity toward the tedium, the “handmade” becomes imperative as a direct record of my existence.
