1. I first met Harry Roseman the first semester of my Junior year at Vassar College in 2007. We met in the Retreat dining area in Main Building to discuss the possibility of me completing an independent study for a sculpture I was hoping to create the following semester. During this conversation, Harry encouraged my undertaking and actually found that it would fit into the curriculum of his sculpture class under his “gravity problem”, eliminating any need for the independent study.
2. My work consists primarily of kinetic sculpture whose intent is to comment on life as an ongoing struggle. This is done by placing everyday objects and actions in environments where they are excessively stressed by the very situations we know them to experience on a day-to-day basis.
