I make things from discarded materials. I rescue trash, broken furniture, unwanted mattresses, and tossed packaging. I reshape these castoffs, using their temporal beauty to explore the ceaseless loop through which we shape the world and are in turn shaped by it. My process is a collaboration in which I listen and look as much as I act or direct. Over time, it stretches objects and structures until neither they nor I can return to the shape we were before. I have little interest in conveying what I already know, instead I try to discover things I could not have imagined, and create resonances that convey the elusive and ephemeral poignancy of existence.
