Artist StatementMy work investigates issues of place and space and boundaries and borders through the exploration and employment of various locative systems. I am most interested in how macro systems relate to micro experiences of land and landscape. My recent series include an investigation of the Fortieth Parallel of latitude; a study of the poet Robert Francisís one-person house in the woods of Amherst, Massachusetts; and a piece that documents the view from every place I have lived to where I live now.
I am fascinated with location-based systems and my work engages the nature of how humans measure the world. I often use or create rules to govern the location or approach in order to make a series of photographs. This method stems from my interest in maps and mapping, historical photographic surveys, and conceptually-based art practices. It is through these influences that I started to see and make pictures: by measuring, coordinating, and locating myself within the world. Currently my work has been progressing from more universally recognized ideas of place towards more personal re-presentations.
