SENTINEL plays with the grasping and clawing forms of a pair of succulents (respectively named Sentinel and Sentinel).

Taking cues from the twisting limbs, SENTINEL is at once stretching in multiple directions and coiling internally - out-reaching limbs and interwoven articulated folds giving way to stretched apertures.

A frozen alien organism.

PORTRAIT plays with the idea of forced flatness.

An intricate network of interconnected nodes forms a fluctuating topography of branches.  The energy of the crafted three dimensional system, however, is dissolved (or sucked dry?) by the presence of the black hole - reducing the sculpture to the flatness of a circle.

The collapse of dimensions onto a single plane.  The reduction of a being into a portrait.

TENSE01
An expression of forms through fabric in suspension.  The sculpture is in tension . It is fighting the form – the frame constructed for it and the threads which bind it. It bends the steel rods and snaps carefully routed strings. The expression is an organic process which cannot be predicted - one additional point of tension creates a response in the entire system.
