“My work arises out of a specific interest in systematic and encyclopedic processes of defining our physical world. I continuously re-arrange an artwork’s position amidst other artworks, and consequently, persistently reposition myself as an artist. In my installations, one may recognize both predictions and approximations. Through placement and replacement new qualitative connections arise. I am primarily interested in the evaluation of these connections. In contemporary society we are urged to orient ourselves within an increasing abundance of impressions and information. I intend not to merely simplify this situation, but to question order within complex structures of intuitive and associative interconnections.”
