A central idea in my work is that function is a form of excess, but decoration can be essential. I make drawings, sculptures and performances using found materials to explore this idea in the context of urban space. I am particularly interested in the mundane architectural hardware through which people and matter travel from one space to another -- the details that make the city permeable.

It recently occurred to me that the pieces of styrofoam we use to protect the things we buy are the eternal monument our culture will leave behind. The problem styrofoam addresses -- how to cushion breakable consumer goods without creating extra shipping weight -- seems to be the kind of problem that we devote most of our intelligence and resources to. My current project, “Ozymandias (Look on my works…and despair),” is a group of sculptures and drawings using discarded styrofoam to rethink art’s relationship to eternity.
