Technical Processes

I make things. In an era of ephemeral and digital arts, of workshops where artists conceive ideas and then direct their minions to realize them, I still painstakingly and physically create every element of each artwork: I fabricate my own joints, patinate my metals, refine the forms of fallen woods. Yet meticulous craftsmanship is not my end goal: it services the conceptual foundation of each work, much as each medium is chosen to service that concept: these elements support, rather than dictate and limit, my work.
