Artist's Statement

Artist Statement 2006

In my work, I perceive and conceptualize the world around me in flickering moments of memory much like a projected filmstrip or video image. Through video I am trying to understand and reconstruct my emotional reaction to these moments. By focusing on this process I am able to re-examine memory and what it means to obsess over, and ultimately interpret my emotional content within these memories. Additionally, I become keenly aware of the inherent dichotomy of fiction and truth present in memory.
