I respond to the underlying story of forgotten industrial landscapes and remote urban wastelands. The stories I discover are about the repetition of triumph and failure as told by the progress of technology since the nineteenth century. I use terms such as, “sculptography”, “installationist”, and “site-responsive”, to convey the form, process, and outcome of my work. Projects have taken me to such far-off locations as abandoned coal mines in Southern Colorado, the overgrown remains of early greenhouse laboratories of the Hudson Valley, and through industrial wastelands along the East River in New York City.
