Water and sound circulate through clear tubes creating a moving drawing in the space.


Artist Statement

My work has become more and more site specific during the last years. I use my material to compose functioning systems which overlay and operate within the existing architecture; a dialogue with and within the space. I use up to 4 kilometers of crisscrossing transparent tubing with a very animated systems of circulating water and air bubbles driven by a sophisticated pump. The result is a very active display of movement within containment, an open metaphor for networks and connections that is informed by the space and the viewers. In my case, these interpretations verge on the metaphysical, but this work provides equal footing for scientific, philosophical, or aesthetic readings. The most essential aspect of this work is: the movement.
