Current Research Interests

My artistic practice and process has involved collaborations with scientists, architects, poets, mathematicians and musicians. I use various combinations of glass, waxed surfaces, found objects and alternative photographic processes.  These mostly translucent materials function as both a physical framework and symbolic membrane. Through the lens these materials provide, I investigate the notions of incommensurability and perception, metaphysics and the sublime. In its totality, my work is the culmination of a practice that explores the way we perceive objects and images through our senses; the implications of scale; and the integration of architecture, nature, and mass culture.
