"My professional work ranges from site-specific projects to installations to public art. I create an interactive space that is informed by the site--its history, people and spatial narrative. In this process, I investigate like a detective and search like an archeologist to explore the sociological and psychological content of each site. The immediate physical and social context of the site influences the form, content, and the choice of materials and media in my work.

The materials and methodology involved in my projects are as diverse as the concepts that dictate them. I excavate numerous meanings--cultural, geopolitical, social or personal--that are hidden within the materials.

By revealing personal memories, collective histories, hidden myths, and contradictory issues of human nature, I explore social and personal facets that galvanize public interaction. Art can provide visual poetry in the environment as well as function as a catalyst to deconstruct and reinvent a new vision for society."
