Artist's Statement

I have an interest in open-ended artworks. When someone is confronted with something that's incomplete, or something that has an open system built into it, it's their tendency to try to complete it. In this case meaning is generated partly by the viewer, but is predicated by choices that the artist has made.
Chance.  Many of my works don't involve chance at all, but rather the adjustment of an ambiguity/meaning ratio.
I'm always very aware of my own tastes when working, and I really like the idea of "tuning" meaning.  On one level I think I've been trying to see if I can get away with using perception itself as the content of my work.
