"Replication Field"
2003
Wood, graphite
240x240x72

Each piece is the result of two separate 
replication processes intersecting along 
two axes of a grid. The piece is large 
enough to walk through and becomes a kind 
of field.

"Consistency I"
2004
Graphite on paper
12x12

This piece began with the delicate outlining 
of a single hair and then grew outwards as I 
meticulously traced and retraced that original 
outline. The process ended when I reached the 
edge of the paper.

"Ramifications V"
2004
Wood, staples
8x8x56

In this series of nine pieces, I split 
tree trunks and branches into thin 
sections using a wedge and froe, and 
then carefully reassembled the original 
forms with staples.

"Cubed II"
2002-004
Wood, epoxy, graphite
63x11x11

Beginning with a wooden beam that was 
my height, I cut the volume in half by 
eye, then quartered it, and so on. The 
resulting 24,576 pieces were then 
reassembled and glued back together 
into their original form.

"Replication II"
2003
Wood, graphite
207x72x4

I began this sculpture by attempting 
to cut a perfect rectangle from a 
4x4x72 piece of wood. Then, I 
traced that form onto a second blank 
of wood and carefully attempted to cut 
a copy. The process was repeated with 
each successive piece of wood.
