My work is multidimensional and experimental in intent, operating in the domain between video, sculpture and installation. Along with materials such as furniture and raw plywood, I combine live video elements with sequential video stills, which are printed out on sometimes extended lengths of inkjet roll paper. This combination of materials gives me access to a board vocabulary, and the means to implement or refer to incidents of both material reality and non-physical phenomena.
The most basic impulse behind the work is in bridging divides, and in making/providing paths to new connections or associations. The disparate materials and configurations both reside together and can individually seem to stand alone, so as to leave the viewer in the position of coming up with her/his own associations and meanings. The old furniture or raw wood, combined with the effects of contemporary technology such as live video, electrified media players and flat screen TVs suggests readings on experientially diverse realms and qualities of time, alongside daily human experience.
