My practice materializes the tension between the systematic and the unintentional, the fully-formed and the amorphous. Each process is a series of interventions into an expected sequence purposefully disrupting it with unforeseeable results. The interventions' motivation is inevitably a lost cause: the will to tame, to firmly grasp, a process spiraling out of control. Sound is a crucial element in my practice, a way of accessing the middle ground between physicality and formlessness. These middle spaces are gaps in the grid of arranged materiality; my goal is to express these gaps, expose them, and shape them into their own material.
