While much of my work serves as a personal record, it doesn’t function as a monument to those typically life changing moments, those we immortalize in photographs and scrapbooks. Rather, it asserts a day-to-day ordinariness. From several year’s worth of saved to-do lists, to a categorized catalog of everything I own, to a seemingly endless stream of numbers and marks and scraps of paper, I attempt to both slow down and record time.
