"I explore possible and fabricated conditions that evade notions of stability and constancy. Focus and negotiation is placed on progression and circulation through accumulating, layering, and reforming various quantities of common manufactured and household materials such as polystyrene, plastics, carpeting, cardboard and office paper. My work navigates around the ideas of production, 'making', material build-up, and flow. I consider the notion that everyday materials and systems, while appearing stable and knowable, often involve a vacillation of processes that defy stabilization."
