Info

I myself am an optimistic skeptic. I travel and navigate the world with this

lens. This way provides evolution, reorganization, learning, and so requires

an inherent openness.

 

I myself grew up on the shores of the Atlantic ocean. Proximity to a

wilderness place is necessary to begin to gain comprehension. It is a

foundation to begin to understand.

 

Making objects and working with the hands only aids. Digging a fence post,

soldering brass, planing ash. To know a material one must first hold it,

attempt to work it.

 

I myself am taken by light cast on a wall or the absence of light at noon. At

times I awake in the darkness, out of sleep, with a disbelief of the possibilities

granted us.

 

With my opportunity, with my time, I attempt to make good work in

conversation with others, with the world. I explore varied means of achieving

conversation, connection and am interested in the non verbal sensorial. To

move without physical force or sound.

 

Design is a conversation not a subjective statement. Art can be subjective.

I myself am a designer. I myself am an artist. Yet do those definitions

matter?
