The possible histories of objects I find have long intrigued me. Why was this item discarded? What
once mean to the person who owned it? If this object could talk, what stories would it tell?
In my work, I am looking for a story.
This series chronicles the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn. Inspired by the gentrification of this
neighborhood, I find myself drawn less to the intrusion of the contemporary and more to the
timeworn character of my surroundings.
In the last ten years I have worked with discarded materials from Brooklyn construction
dumpsters, found materials and have been working since 2016 on a multi-media installation work
called the Balloon Project.
