The architecture of context motivates my work. It is a shared space I intend to create, a space that contains the possibility for adventure and thoughtfulness, a journey that is shaped and communicated through the design. A safe place for experience and storytelling with projects that are generative and dynamic. Art can create a ripple effect of contemplation and discovery, Movement. Experience of being through and in-between time as structure. Immateriality. Perceptions of conversations. Simulacrum is only part of the story. Plato wasn’t only looking at the shadows, he was looking at the changes.
In the 60’s the Situationists proclaimed that "the new type of beauty can only be a beauty of situations." This is something still being discovered today. I am even more provoked by the importance of situations that hide themselves as art unable to be named; art that is immediate but cannot be immediately canonized. Engagement is an opportunity to make art exist as a possibility rather than being material. Experience is political.
Context is site.
