Artist Statement

My work is about creating space in which one becomes more aware of themselves and their senses.  The space is pure and free of prior emotional or historical connection. Subtle changes to the material and the environment heighten this awareness, asking one to take notice. Limiting light and ones’ sight, I wish to slow people down to understand the space through their sense of touch, smell, and hearing.

By touching something outside of ourselves, we become more conscious of our bodies. In an unfamiliar environment, which carries no memories or associations, we can maximize our haptic experience. The less information you have about your environment through your senses the slower and more hesitant your movements. Not knowing where you are, and when, where, what, or how you will contact, you move slowly and carefully and your senses become more sensitive.  Unexpected contact awakens us and leads us to have a pure encounter having enough time to have better understanding. Otherwise, we will meet but not meet, feel but not feel.
