“In my practice I utilize an essay format as framework for creating sculptures. The most current excerpt of this essay is termed “The Forever Museum: Intro to Site 17”. It is a museum that exists in both theoretical and sculptural form. Within this museum, daily objects, artifacts, sculptures and co-opted photographs are centrally positioned to examine the disjuncture within the documentation of history.”
