Making Thoughts

One part observation. One part composition. One part inner-dialogue. One part analog process.

This on-going research explores assemblage as both a mental practice and compositional method. The content for the work comes from the way I think about creating meaning and connections in my work. Inspiration never comes from one single source, but from the compound effect of continuously engaging with various methods of communication. It may be a book, a social-media post, a tv commercial, a private conversation or a radio interview—each piece constructing a context of reference. The ability to translate individual thoughts into physical form create the opportunity to reveal a universal experience. Rhetorical questions propel internal dialogue and clarify commonalities about life and humanity. Questions or answers that link all of us together.
