I should have been a librarian. I’m always using repetitive processes, exercising my passion for systems, for cataloging and for restructuring. Applying a system to something I don’t understand or a theory I am trying out is a way of exploration that becomes a means of making.  Whether capturing the day’s passing shadows with ink and coffee, re-contextualizing hand gestures found in newspapers or marking points of human contact to the physical world, the work touches simple quandaries we face daily. “What remains? What changes? What is remembered? What is forgotten? The system may be arbitrary or inherent in the material, process, or idea. The exploration is rarely conclusive, the clarity of a system often surfacing more exploration.
