There is a point of banal absurdity that interests me, in the endless imbalance between our grotesque human failures and enchanting victories.
The built environment provides a way of exploring dreams, mistakes and ideals. I am interested in the way built things hold traces of both human intent and natural entropy, eventually leading to decay and desolation. This study gives me a strategy for exploring the human occupation of the world without needing to narrow the gaze to any individual.
We make a life of bombastic false promise, dirty happy accident, soaring achievement and humble faltering progress. Our ingenuity defies gravity and our baseness anchors us. In a small way, my work explores some of the manifestations of this insolvable, permanent imbalance.
