I work with sculpture, installation and text where material connected to memory and activities plays a big part. Material, artifacts and stories that I find and encounter transforms into work (words and objects) that form an interconnecting composition. Failure (honesty), time (expectations), and space (movement) is used as tools in my method and connecting parameters in my work.
