My recent work:
I am interested in the constructs surrounding us — rooms, buildings, cities, and the structure of nature too — empty and beautiful.
Now I am collaborating on an installation about words, because words too are constructs surrounding us — letters, words, phrases, and the seeming cacophony too — is true and beautiful.
First there was Chaos. And then there was The Word.
Words misunderstood toppled the tower of Babylon.
What is said can be ugly, yet the truth has meaning. And, therefore, is beautiful. Art brings understanding. Word.
