What I make
I make art about my life. From the things right in front of me. This website was inspired by the letter Y. My name begins and ends with it. 'The end and the beginning where always the same before the beginning and after the end.’ The letter traditionally regarded as a consonant but more commonly used as a vowel. The photo (actually a still from a video) I made in 2006. It's theme is loss. That's certainly what it evokes in me. The inspiration for it was different. Walking down this corridor on nightly visits to my late father (at this point I hadn't seen him in over 10 years) the past was very present - dropping out of the present into memory made the walk seem like an eternity. So, it's a piece about time and memory and relativity - when I watch the video now I experience it differently. I experience loss. 'The sound of foot steps always walking away.'
