Currently I use both paper and metal for their ability to record the intricate effects of wear and tear on the cultural and natural fabric of our contemporary world. Among these effects are the boundary shifts that are being caused by global warming. Several sculptures evoke shelters that might once have been considered secure, but have now become outposts in uninhabitable territory. A sculpture called It’s Only a Wave, Ma’am is simultaneously a wave and a building, indicating a deadly confusion between comfort and danger. References to the human body and to human scale unite in the sculpture to produce the un-settling effect of implicating a part of the viewer’s body in the action that defines each sculpture. It is as if a part of one’s body is being used without one’s consent, disturbing the boundary between the artwork and the viewer.
