Project Space

My studio practice is dictated by the necessity of rules. Practice has become praxis. Whether it is silver point drawing, casting lead, firing glass, bending wood, sewing cloth, exposing silver, etching copper, plating metals, plotting data or playing with debris, the practice is in service of the larger project. Positions have been taken, moves must be made and anticipated, leaving space for particular strategies of making things. This is necessary.
