PLACE-BASED ART PROJECTS

I think about art in the way that William Whyte and Jane Jacobs thought about cities. They (and many others through history) taught us that cities are not just aggregations of streets and buildings, but are defined and given their essence by the human interaction that happens around, within, and between the physical components. In most of my creative work, the physical object is only a small part of what art is about, and it is the place, time, context, process and human interactions that truly shape the work. These large-scale, process-oriented, ephemeral works exemplify my creative worldview.
