All of my pieces are homages to the ancestors. My work is an invitation to examine the delicate membrane which veils those who dwell in thespirit world from those we refer to as the living. This membrane is called the heart. Light, historical artifacts, photographs and oral narration are my primary tools. I use these elements to reveal neglected members of our culture, (re)placing them in public view.
In my slide projection pieces, I combine the ethereal nature of light and the solidity of architecture to symbolize a balance between the spiritual and material worlds. Projecting images in outdoor architectural settings is my way of monumentalizing the forgotten. — This is my work.
