I use an interdisciplinary approach, which includes: Sculpture, Architectural Model Making, Installation, Environmental Design, Photography, Drawing, and Collage to create a complete spectrum of ideas or experiences.
My art addresses concepts of utopia, utilitarianism, environmentalism, and ideas about perfect form. I examine how the forms that are used in the architectural reality of our world, connect to our ideas about the natural environment and our role in it. The sublime and the mundane, and our relationship to conceptual and physical space, are investigated and reconfigured.
In blending art, science, systems engineering and architecture I seek to highlight issues and provide solutions, however meaningful, visionary, insightful, practical, or absurd.
