The law of entropy or the loss of energy during a process is inherent in transformation. Entropy has been credited as the reason for human existence and as a natural state of disorder. In disorder we can find order. We go through numerous transformations where we have to lose something to gain something else. The transition between knowing and uncertainty is liminal and often uncomfortable, yet necessary.
There is a tremendous amount of poetic beauty in our uncertain lives. I create objects that pose questions about our comfort with uncertainty. How do we reconcile the uncertain with the certain and find comfort in knowing that we are part of a much greater cycle? How do we respond to uncertainty? How can we see beauty in uncertainty? If we recognize our own mortality will we live a more meaningful life?
Sometimes my work appears in the form of an autonomous machine. The works are scaled to me, and function as self-portraits. Most recently I have started a series of work that poses questions about how we grieve loss, connect with the reality of it, and still look for a moment to laugh and find solace.
