“I am interested in concepts that allude to the restoration of things once muted due to the paradoxes in time. These perceptions are summoned through materials with inherent geographic histories, processes, and economies that imply varying degrees of personalized and public memory. My work attempts to assemble a visual language that reconciles the process in which the history of this information is recorded, stored, and retrieved.”
