“I am interested in strategies that allude to the restoration of objects once muted or obscured through temporal phenomena. These perceptions are summoned through building materials: reclaimed literary texts, wood, textiles, concrete, masonry bricks, iron, and drywall—elements that suggest an economic stratum and geographic histories that retain personal and public memory.”
