Objects can tell a fantastic story, but simply looking at artifacts of human culture with a scientific view does not always animate the full experience. I utilize extant forms, which range from recent and domestic to deep time and archaeological. By stringing together content via objects and images from different points in history and distant geographic locations I disregard linear time. Within each new drawing and assemblage I am able to explore meaning and metaphor associated with the objects. I utilize this collection to retell stories about specific, people, places, and objects.
