I am interested in how the process of making echoes the process of aging--informed by luck, choice and chance, reacting to forces (often random) that make us who we are. Sometimes ‘the thing itself’ becomes an agent and seems to have an active hand in its own making. When a functional project and an improvisational process interact, surprises result. These hybrids are beautifully disabled; they show traces of recognizable function, ghosts of pasts, fictional and lived.
