My recent projects have focused on fnding and interpreting unclaimed or contested public space(s), and on reading the importance of the spatial relationship to both personal and shared- cultural memory. The stories told in those contested spaces reveal alternate possibilities for the human experience – and particularly our experience of urban zones. My work is oriented toward the public realm, is collaborative more than it is ‘interactive,’ relies on ethnographic and art-historical research, and takes advantage of both contemporary and historical forms of artistic media.
