  POSSIBLY TOOLS, 2018   I am interested in the conversation that takes place between objects and us that constructs the meaning of those objects. The idea came when I saw a group of stone and clay artifacts displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They are "possibly a handle for a vessel to carry water", "probably a container for medicine", and "probably religious idols".  There is a dialogue between the objects and us.

  TIME VESSELS, 2017    "Time Vessels”  is a meditation on time travel and our ability to tell stories. We talk about our dreams for the future and dwell on moments in our past. The stories we tell let us travel against the natural flow of time. We are the time machines. These vessels were inspired by human organs. They are our tools to travel through time.

   THE LARGEST CROP, 2017    You and I are the ingredients for our environment. The landscape changes as we move.  I was inspired by a Civil-war era warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY which used to store cotton – “the largest crop in New York City” as it was called.

   MEDICINE CABINETS, 2017    I am in a bathroom alone, like any other time I would use a bathroom, and realize that a cabinet containing private remedies is in front of my eyes, available for me to search thoroughly without being seen by others.
