Much of my work is associated with thought and memory and how these are passed between people. Whether those thoughts are shared through spoken, written or pictorial manner, the narrative of the thoughts engages me. In Mind Like A Steel Trap I examine the dissolution of those thoughts and memories and the deterioration of the brain with the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. The concept of disintegration and degeneration is visually represented by the reduction in solidity and weight of the units. Each unit is constructed of materials of decreasing substantiality to reflect the deconstruction apparent in the minds and memories of those afflicted. Through the discourse of art, I hope to expose this issue as it relates to an ever-increasing population.
