installations

Fractal structures define life’s patterns both figuratively and metaphorically. Just as a cell groups together with other cells to form a more complex organism, my installation process begins with the most simple and builds to the more complex. I connect one fundamental element with another and another and another until a more intricate whole is formed. Through site-specific installation, I explore how dynamic patterns connect landscapes and life forms, physiology and physics, death and detritus, growth and form.
