Our hands are one of the most direct ways of connecting us to the world around us. They are representative of a sense that is used to answer our questions. I enjoy using materiality as a tool to create a bond and inspire the desire to investigate. Through the use of tactile materials, such as borax crystals and sandpaper I intend on tempting the viewer to investigate while simultaneously creating a mysterious distance. I am interested in preserving objects and actions that are representative of age in relation to time and making them relevant to the present day.
Recently I have become intrigued by a natural representation of time, a crack. This form is the result of an action, a moment that produces a permanent fracture in something that was meant to be whole. A crack is a recognition of time in a fast passed world, a subtle yet significant testament to imperfection. This flaw can be seen as a physical representation of a memory; it is the evidence that something has happened. Through my work, I intend to create moments that inspire a recognition of time and hope to encourage others to slow down.
