Both formal and concept based notions are brought together with commonplace ideas, acts and objects. The projects employ mundane and ordinary procedures and materials to address the fragile and changing nature of the condition of things and the desire/need to maintain that which is deemed valuable/necessary. Among the essentials are pragmatic, ludic, futile, and poetic elements used to reveal an optimism, conviviality, empathy, familiarity that may lie dormant, unsaid, unnoticed within everyday things and experiences.
