Place contains a power that affects and influences our identities in relation. Our surrounding environment, whether it be built structures or wild landscape, is infused with meaning and function that we navigate continually, both physically and mentally.
I want to explore this relationship of our identities to space: natural and built, unexplored and lived. How we traverse and exist with our assemblies. Configurations of clay and steel create new structures in which to influence a new interaction from one person to the next.
Abstract representations of space, place, time, and memory are objects to explore our interaction with these elements. New environments are created using the space as a guide to interact with pieces that are at once unfamiliar and familiar. A place that will trigger a memory but still leave it frosted over. The conscious and the unconscious mind working together to recognize a place.
