This has always been the work of art: to inspire the senses -- to make the body feel -- without necessarily direct experience, through signs, colors, sounds, movement, and so on. At its highest, the experience and the making of art are identical.


Accordingly, my work is usually interactive and kinetic in nature. I strive to make pieces in which the viewer interface is both the form and function of the piece. I want people to remember themselves, in much the same way that babies discover their fingers. When my work is successful, the piece is completed by the viewer-participant and she/he continues her/his journey more aware and delighted in being a body.
