I am interested in



Things that have potential beyond their initial existence;

they speak to me.


There are objects I've found,  

Artifacts that have been collected, saved, stashed away

over decades of oooh look at this
and isn’t that interesting...

And people who have said "I saw this and thought of you..."

A rusted piece of something-or-other, a feather, a bone, a dead hard drive.

Such things have possibilities.

Items assemble and congregate and then
Conversations occur.


These are narrative works in which stories unfold.
