The ideas of incongruence and dysfunction animate my larger body of work and are articulated through subsequent investigations that vary in methods and materials. While the aesthetics of the images produced varies, the experimental approach taken to create them remains constant. I prefer to create situations where methodological rigor can be coupled with attention for the incongruent and surprising aspects of reality. In many ways I seek to be a researcher, a technician of visual language. I seek to stimulate discussion and discovery. The objects and the images are by-products of the research; by-products that I cherish and love but that do not represent me or represent a unified coherent aesthetic discourse that dictates future work.
