"I produce work based on the inefficiency of memory's ability to maintain narrative. My work aims to develop formal sensory triggers that precipitate nostalgic responses from the viewer, in an effort to develop narrative participation from the viewer. These formally ambiguous objects, which act as surrogates for lost entities in my personal experience, become tactile markers for memories which have broken down over time. Continually accessing memories, we continue to break down the proteins that help store their information. Like a jpeg that is averaged and deteriorates each time it is accessed, these scenes are averaged time after time and gaps are filled to create clarity. I am interested in this type of systematic failure, a beautiful disaster of sentimentality. Engaging that element of the human experience is an essential part of my practice. Keeping my objects formally ambiguous allows the viewer to engage on their own terms." 2017
