Our New Self Check System
Where Nothing Moves Except the Light
Human perception, especially self-awareness, is the central concern of my art. In my work, I think about thinking and about how past experiences shape future thoughts. From the beginning of life, we each build a personal model of the world to make sense of it. We revise and expand that model over time to survive as our autonomy increases. We reflect, we learn, and we change. One early winter afternoon, as I stood in my kitchen amid deepening and suggestive shadows, I began to see scenes that brought to mind childhood stories of simple religious characters teaching simple lessons. The scenes in this story—now much more personal and complex—are significant to the me that is now. They take place in a world where nothing moves except the light.
Light the Lifeless Spirit
Human perception, especially self-awareness, is the central concern of my art. In my work, I think about thinking. During the past year everyday events began to unravel. Time stuttered, important interests lost their power, trivial thoughts became preoccupations. I felt dry, as if my empathy had disappeared and with it the joy of creation. My photographs show dark, hard, metallic pieces of equipment—machinery of storage and control. The ostensible subjects of the photographs are photographic objects. In studying them, I see that, without intention, I have made a portrait of myself. I have begun to find my way back from lifelessness.

Sometimes the canvas seems blank at first.
Negative or positive, in or out, push or pull. Danger flickers in the corner of your eye.
