Many of the artworks that I make are created through the design and construction of controlled environmental spaces. In these environments I transform and refine a variety of sculptural artifacts much as one might train the growth of a Bonsai tree. My desire is that a person encountering this artwork will consider the idea of nature within a frame of social and historic contexts.
