This installation measures 9 1/2 'W x 8'D x 10'H, I have made a video of the process of the construction. It sprang from my unconscious, and was process driven. It was a great deal of fun, and I many times became entangled within its grips!
Layers upon layers bathing each other in light. Though sometimes not affecting each other at all. Sometimes the layers are so opaque, the light cannot get through. Its as though these layers of time were in another dimension.
I am focusing on the boxes in my work right now. Whether it be manipulating the photo images, making new boxes or even painting the images on paper. I am also in the process of creating an installation in my studio. The space is around 15' x 15' x 10'. Its exciting yet I am creating as I go along. I don't want to be stuck in having to recreate a specific plan. I want to see how the process evolves in the moment. I think about it all the time.
I am experimenting with Adobe photoshop. I am utilizing photos of my boxes with photos of dancers that I shot 2 months ago. The process is slow for me right now but with time my skills will become more refined. I have also printed some of these images on different types of rag paper. i am pleased with the results.
"How hard is it to situate the values of being and non-being!And where is th root of silence? is it a distinction of non-being, or a domination of being? "It is deep."But where is the root of its depth?In the universe where sources about to be born are praying, or in the heart of a man who has suffered? And at what height of being should listening ears become aware?" (p.180,The Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard)
I am exploring photography and also Photoshop. I can really manipulate the different effects of the boxes I am constructing. Its a little awkward at the moment but its quite interesting. Soon I hope to make the boxes bigger and have more space to play with. The photoshop also allows me to investigate color via the computer.
"Consciousness of being at peace in one's corner produces a sense of immobility. An imaginary room rises up around our bodies, which think that they are well hidden when we take refuge in a corner." (The Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard)

These pieces are about breaking through to another space in time. A space that exists all around us in the present time though invisible to us. It exists in the world of mathematics and in the subatomic world. Maybe one day it will become accessible to the lay person. One can only imagine it in the minds eye right now. Ask Brian Greene the Physicist, he can explain "The Multi-Universe" quite clearly!
This piece is about the imagery reflecting our inner struggle at times. The emotional upheaval one feels in just being human. On a daily basis one can encounter the duality of perfect harmony versus angst, anger, repression, and struggle in coping with our material world. The eternal questions arise: how, what, when, where, and why?

These beings like all beings are interconnected. All living things have a web of connection in life. There is nothing nor anyone separate in this universe; we are all interdependent, an organism which feeds, breathes, and lives off of each other.
