statement

I’m interested in moments of dissociation that create memory. Peripheral information found between elements is the content.  The work mainly comes from dreams, memories, and writings, the writings are visual sketches of places that I thematically find myself, a particular symbolic code made from the combination of emotion/intuition and a place.
