By reusing and reconfiguring natural and manmade materials, I try to create environments, new life forms, and potential new (mis)uses of common objects. Re-forming materials into the unintended can lead to strange and sometimes absurd juxtapositions. I hope for a viewer, or participant in my work to have an unexpected experience with these materials- Something as simple as walking by a piece can initiate movement and set up an interaction with the viewer. David Hume wrote, "Beauty is no quality in things themselves: it exists in the mind that contemplates them." It also exists in the actual or imagined physical contact with these things.
