Fri May 23 2014: duration makes space; call it breathing room

Fri Apr 18, 2014: magician-surgeon - Videos are aggregates of found and made footage, comprised of screen captures, digital constructions, hd video, performances, and appropriated imagery; they exist somewhere between document & dream

Wed Jan 01, 2014: and we will be like those who are dreaming


Wed Dec 4, 2013: not casual


I am in the site and it is a ruin.
I touch everything. Everything gets touched.
I touch like I've been touched: all at once.
Hands can't do it. Touch without hands is a knowing touch.
A clumsy rolling over.
The river presses and is pressed. The touch of sides, side to side, shore-hugging flow.
Clumping, clotting through ritual. In the ritual I am a Witch Doctor, a Snake Oil Salesman, a Clown.
I touch things I don't understand. Things I don't remember. Things I hate. And love. I touch sharp edges of disparate ideas. Methods that refuse to cohere.


The work is the evidence of a search – an inward inquiry, an alchemical investigation. It is the measuring of breath and the distance traveled in exhalation – a visual approximation of unquantifiable exchanges. It is the appraisal of intangibles - like timing how long it takes for a difficult word to move over a lump in one’s throat or numbering the moments one traces the lines of a lover's face in memory.

The work seeks to traverse the line of the paradoxical divide, inhabiting the tenuous space between dialectical poles. This journey is manifested through materials; the expression is one of metaphor. The relationship of crystallized salt to glitter for example, conjures questions of authenticity and begs the question, what is real?

In this work there is a slipping from one state to another, there is death and there is becoming.

There is the question of self… the self, made – the self, defined – the self, fragmented – the self, reborn.

Though there is self, there is not “I”. I only perform.
