Life is limited, therefore time is our most valuable commodity. There is a futility in our attempts to hold onto time visible through the cultures of craft, photography, and historical preservation. This body of work utilizes elements of all three to explore our understanding of time as it passes into memory.


 

Craft makes time tangible, photography attempts to preserve yet loses substance in the process and archaeological practices take the remnants of the past to imagine a different place in time, often at the expense of fidelity.


 

As we move forward we carry our past with us. Each new choice is built on the landscape of what came before. In this work, each choice no matter how strong or weak is left in. In general, strong choices are highlighted and weak ones are obscured, but ultimately nothing is safe from the mandate of the new. The past becomes the substructure that holds up new growth and making way for the new often unearths the old.
