My attraction to the energy of urban areas inspires a playful, excited examination of the frenzied systems around me.  Highly active environments such as ports, stations, airfields, or sub-street infrastructures feel like childhood experiments with Tinkertoys and Lego bricks, or voyages into Richard Scarry's seemingly chaotic worlds.  I’ve been exploring my awareness of these arrangements and my position within them, making associations with anatomy and physicality, and allowing myself the opportunity to revisit a youthful mindset that seems more and more fleeting.
