When I was little I took things apart. Typewriters, clothing, radios..... I put them back together - usually with may leftover parts, but, they looked a whole lot better at least to me.
My work always revolves around taking ti=hings apart and putting them back together. A process of deconstruction and reconstruction. My goal is transformation, reconciliation, and redemption. What didn't work before, now does. I deconstruct an existing narrative an write a new story.
It is a salvaging process. The technique I us first builds a strict for the work. It gives and underlying parameter of what was, and what will be. I like the past" it needs to be part of the future. Then I add collaborative elements that enhance while not eliminating its base.
People constantly ask me, "Well, what is it?" Can a preexisting idea be deconstructed and reconstructed as something new Ultimateley the work addresses questions of boundaries. Where the the previous stage stop and what do additional layers of meaning add?
