artist statement

I am interested in creating systems to capture fleeting phenomena. The content of each system revolves around a fascination with collecting the uncollectible; items that are too common, too gross, or intangible to exist in a proper collection. Each item has a separate system, some as simple as just collecting the object and others involve more traditional record keeping. Eventually, the objects and/or the record of the objects become part of an archive to preserve the item for examination in the future, elevating the uncollectible to the aesthetic. My hope in each collection is to create something so beautiful that the viewer is compelled to investigate the piece and then completely surprised by the material.
