Although often ephemeral, my time-based works have always been deployed in conjunction with a commitment to materiality and always firmly rooted in the context of something that exists to the touch. While still sensitive to the “hand,” my practice has expanded to more integrate my background in molecular science and urban education. Through a series of progressive, though infinitesimal, steps, matter, ideas and relationships are transformed, sometimes towards decay and sometimes towards definition. As teacher and researcher, I shift towards a practice based upon collaborations with, and outward observations of, others. Inherently, these connections take time, and it is through watching, listening, and conversing that the center of works emerges.
