Whether I have worn the hat of architect, writer, editor, or visual artist, the work has always centered on communication through language and image, connection through story, and exploration of ideas. What fascinates me, as both writer and artist, is how collectively we continue to try to build or restore a narrative about the world and ourselves in it, despite our not knowing the beginning or the end of the story. We don’t even know what the whole was, is, or might be, though we generate so many of the pieces themselves. Most telling, I think, is what we make of those fragments of the tale, how we rearrange truth to satisfy curiosity or ward off uncertainty. In my work, I explore the ways we imagine ourselves in the incomplete story with an unknowable end. (Artist statements for some individual works can be found in my Notebook.)
