My current body of work explores the link between matter and energy, a fusion of subjective and objective reality, and the effect our perception has on the world around us. My works are essentially non-objective, functioning more like a conduit between the observer and the environment. By using simple, elegant forms and light I attempt to create a balance between displaying evidence of ritualistic artistic process, and purely natural phenomena - a balance that hopefully has some influence on the experience of the viewer / participant, as they themselves enter a state of cohesion with the environment.

My work seeks to be energy efficient and environmentally sensitive. That, with its temporal, ephemeral nature tries to remind us of the similar traits our world expresses, something we are conditioned with ourselves also. It exists in time, perhaps more than in space, and lives on through its documentation. Like a memory of an event.
