About The Artist

Sequential, rhythmic photography allows me to combine painterly elements with a sculptural format, all while working at different scales. The compositions become interactive and meditative, providing a glimpse of the infinite within the physical world. In my work I like to transgress predictable perceptions of space and time: to widen horizons by installing indoor skies, vertical walls of grass, or floors of books. I challenge the conventional notion of art as something to be kept separate from the body.

About The Artwork

Ordinary urban details that we take for granted enter our consciousness subliminally. In September 2005, in collaboration with architectural historian Richard Ingersoll, I was commissioned to produce two monumental, interactive, double-sided 'photo-curtains' as part of an international exhibition for the Kunsthaus Museum in Graz, Austria. The public passed through these photo-curtains to enter and exit the section titled "Eurosprawl" of the international exhibition "MStadt" (M City), between September 2005 and February 2006. In this work I have selected urban features that describe a sensory geography of place. Traffic Jam represents the nervous energy of the urban vehicle experience. Traffic Rolls represents the fluidity of roads linking places outside the urban perimeter.
