I'm fascinated by the way we live within a world of human-made patterns, ranging from
the layout of city streets to our personal patterns of daily behavior. We are constantly
making unseen patterns through the routes that we travel, the words that we speak, the
items that we buy. I search for patterns in my own life as a means of studying it
objectively, as I strive to understand the nature of life more fully. I'm drawn by the
relationship between objectivity and subjectivity. Often rational and scientific means are
used to learn about the world that surrounds us, but these results are always inflected
by our own personal experiences and emotions. The same event witnessed, song
heard, or story read by a group of people is remembered differently by each person. My
work examines information gathered from my own life in an objective manner in an
attempt to understand it more fully while I simultaneously acknowledge and accept the
fallibility and futility of such an endeavor. Ultimately the truths we create for ourselves
are as flawed and malleable as we are.
