A Statement of Practice

There are no Ideas but in things.

-William Carlos Williams

 There is a region between, a place where the thing, as it has until now existed, breaks down or open or through, and a new-thing emerges. I am drawn to this region as a place of potent meaning and to the latent new-things that dwell there, lying in wait in fields of possibility and contextual interplay. The medium is unimportant. Because the medium is unimportant, I use the material the work demands. The new-things can be experienced as reflections of us-plus. I am interested in the materials of the everyday and the surfaces of the casually overlooked, in finding ways to fit things together to create some-new-thing, perhaps, meaningful, maybe meaning-less, maybe interesting. You decide.

All around things tend to gather, like dust, in the periphery of our paths, at the corners of our intersecting lives and in the shadows of our selves.
