“Basically, I assemble pieces of the natural and forgotten worlds. Some pieces are clues or talismans, others are portals. I’m interested in these “souvenirs,” these things dismantled or unearthed, because they have undergone a vital, elemental transformation. My collaborator and subject, my muse and nemesis, is time. In this way, I work not only in three, but in four dimensions.”
