«I think a lot about the persistence of objects and the role the archive plays in our understanding of a cultural past, present, and possibilities for the future. While the creative process often feels like a form of alchemy, where inspiration and ideas transmute to create a concrete form able to encapsulate the abstract experiences of the everyday. Art as a form itself has the same porous boundaries as anything else in life. Like any language, it is shaped by the context in which it is conceived and received.»
