Using my background knowledge from working as a graphic designer, I employ a rational, logical and pragmatic approach when making work.
I have an ongoing interest to proposing and finding solutions to problems, often problems that cannot be formulated before they have been solved, the shaping of the question is part of the answer.
I look for things to fix or improve, working like a tinkerer/inventor, I propose alternatives to existing models, preferring to find ways around doing things properly, bypassing the struggle.
I use self referentiality as an objective guide to reduce the extraneous and subjective, and strive for a conceptual logic.
The idea is paramount and the material form secondary.
My website is a tool where I both create works, and index and exhibit projects chronologically.
I propose systems, templates, invitations and opportunities for collaboration, creating social networks where contributers shape the outcome and participate in the building of works.
I embrace contradictions, and dilemmas.
I like gray areas, oxymorons and the feeling of falling backwards.
My favorite colour is the purple found in a soap bubble.
I seek alignments, paradoxes, chance circumstance, loops, impossibilities and wit encountered in everyday life.
I often change my mind, go full circle, and arrive at the beginning.

BLACK > BLANK:
"A laser printer containing a new toner cartridge was set to constantly print a black A4 document until the toner ran empty and a pure white sheet emerged, unprinted. As the pages exited the printer, I stacked them face up. The completed stack of paper contains the entire contents of the toner cartridge. The bottom page is black, the top page is white, and between is the transition—demise, depletion, expiration—from black to blank, full to empty."
CHANCE: noun: A possibility of something happening.
"One morning a worker dug a hole directly outside my studio using a jackhammer. After a couple of hours of making very loud noise, he went away for lunch and left the hole. An hour later, he came back and filled the hole in."
