ARTIST STATEMENT: From the frenetic swinging of lead weights in a sandy landscape to the quiet solidity of an image suspended on the surface of water, my work explores systems, disrupted rule structures, and self-organization. I create compositions in time with computer programs and electronics, build immersive environments that are activated by projected and natural light, and intervene on materials that erode, drip, melt, evaporate, break apart, or float away. My installations are permeable systems that change at irregular intervals. I start with the many until the few can be extracted, developing new responses to each unexpected turn in a process that seems not to emulate, but to materialize, the idea of learning itself.

My art studio is a deeply inefficient laboratory. Experiments unravel and organize themselves into oddly evolved iterations, hypotheses are proven that were never formed, sequences begin in the middle and abruptly stop. Over the last few years I have accumulated a strange blueprint of knowledge that is a byproduct of my studio investigations. I have learned where magenta fluid will go as it flows through an inefficient feedback loop—how floating graphite powder will separate itself into fractured tectonic plates on a bed of still water—how dripping tubes reconstitute solid material back into liquid—what the prismatic haloes of light in a bright yellow room will do if a cloud passes in front of the sun.
