awe/agency.  MFA Thesis Exhibition.  Porcelain, Stoneware, wood, paint, video projection, audio, monofilament.  10 ft. x 25 ft. x 14 ft. area installed.  2014.  Detail-speaker box with audio component.

i start with minimal, elemental materials such as clay, glaze, wood, metal. pulling from my research on wonder and beauty, i pile, grid, suspend or scatter these elements in the gallery. i work like a poet arranging words, creating a composition that expresses what is in my heart.   sometimes i inject pointed, direct content into these compositions in order to create vulnerability around topics that may seem incendiary. video, audio and/or interactivity further add to the content and atmosphere. the observation and interaction of the viewer, the connection that may or may not occur, is the final component of the work.
