My work explores the intersection of mass media and our habits of its consumption. I am thinking about how information is delivered, how it is perceived and the gap between presentation and meaning. Each new format for communication transforms the nature of our thinking. Observations in journal drawings and diary entries, and notes from research are a source for prints, artist’s books and assemblages. Years of working in libraries, materials collected, concepts experienced, and the evolving technology are a foundation for projects and ideas. The work expresses nostalgia and anxiety produced by constant and rapid change.
