My current work stems from the framework of perception, particularly in regard to space. It is in either the abyss or compromised architectural sites that I find meaning radiating. These still leftovers of our dominantly activated environment store moments, frozen in time, suspended in mid-motion. The writings of Marc Augé and his ideas about non-places have fueled my interest in the architecture of supermodernism, the aesthetics of distance and discontinuities within the spectacle of globalization. My work seeks to momentarily dislocate questions of identity, to serve as an itinerary, a breakdown of immediacy, where distances are measured in increments of time.
