My objective is to create novel visual experiences that reveal the gap between what can be seen and what can be known.  I start from a place of loss: a photograph that strips its subject of color, dimension and motion.  Then I turn the photograph into a sculpture.  Information is lost and then substituted. The result is a distortion that reveals the powerful impact technology has on perception and identity.  But the distance between my artwork and the subject is no greater than the distance between the subject and the photograph. The artwork, the photograph, and the viewer’s own experience all serve as markers to triangulate the space between the observation and the observed.
