My installations interrupt everyday spaces, most recently the
featureless architecture typical of contemporary office buildings.
Combining projected video, sound, and basic building materials, 
the projects propose a kind of makeshift magic in unlikely places.  
In Mining the Gap, daylight and street sounds filter through a 
ventilation grate, revealing a passage through the wall and a 
skewed view of the street activity outside.  In Untitled, billowing 
white smoke appears to enter and fill a room through a series of 
vents in the walls.  Often the work perforates the boundaries of 
an enclosed space, opening it both visually and psychologically.  
I disturb these generic built spaces in order to call their supposed 
neutrality into question, asking people to imagine what else might 
be possible within and beyond them.
