Artist's Note

I remain unconvinced by this website’s ability to convey a record my work. It presents an often sterile perspective, lacking both the work’s temporal and physical presence and your experience of the space. These pages can only hint at the nature of the work.

Through this site’s many incarnations, I have here settled on a design which mimics the full print archive of my projects - the Volumes. This ‘projects’ section serves as an abbreviated digital archive from my past projects, organized loosely by each respective Volume. For a full record of the work, please refer to the full corresponding Volume. This self published series combines the creation, exhibition, and reflection on the projects as they relate to the long term goals of the projects in a method which allows readers a secondary tactile and participatory experience of the work.
