For years, I have been exploring the notion of memory and the relationship between the person and personal space.
Using photography, found pictures, archives, audio and video, I primarily create installations that explore the function of people, places, and objects in the construction of mnemonics – the fictions by which we revivify the past, extrapolate the future, and invent the present.
