My current work addresses sites within a domestic space – particularly the bed/bedroom and table/dining room – that are routinely and ritually inhabited. These sites are the intersections where connections are established and sustained, or may potentially breakdown. The work is an abstraction of how I translate the expansive and complex experiences that take place across the surface of these sites. What is retained from these experiences is reflected back in a series of memory traces that inform our behavior in the context of the next experience. As a result, a pattern emerges which shapes our identity.
