Artist Statement:

Somewhere between the seemingly ever-developing density of my city and the ever-growing accumulation of my material possessions, this is where I dwell. A stationary nomad anchored by objects in an urban environment that moves for me and around me. In the shadows of this vertical ambition I search for home or least somewhere to store all that stuff, all that history, that’s been packed up tight.
