Light is the medium in which I am most interested. I make apparatus that I use to shift, refract, bend and reflect my light to create the atmospheric effects which are my pieces in sculpture. In a recent series of mine, Paradigm, I transform this light to fill a structured volume of space with a dynamic three-dimensional projection. In entering my space, viewer is thrown into a mesmerizing and otherworldly expanse, as relationships of individual point of ethereal light evolve and coalesce in reaction movement. 

The effect, although reached through relatively simple means, produces a three- dimensional image which is felt more that it is seen, spilling out of the great volume of the sculpture and filling the entire space in which it is seen. 

Not only does the work bring the view to question the materials and forms I use to create the effect and illusion, it also brings a precise sort of awareness to the space that it is seen in. How one understands their vision is poignantly brought to the fore as the universal is seen thought the particular. By bringing the viewer into a place of more acute perception, my installations seek to elevate my viewers’ consciousness as they experience a space and their sense in a new way.
