Small-scale and intimate markings inside old books, sketchbooks, diaries, post it notes, lottery tickets... re-purposed through medias of dissemination (photo/social/blogger/film/print/install/perform) and the here + now.
Impressions add up: all these little notes on paper, random bits: the decorated detritus of my life’s journey through places, ideas, and things. Half visual, half linguistic, and always demonstrating a strange and urgent need to recall the moment-of: to make my life real and poetic through archived annotation.
