I purposefully use materials from the everyday outdoor environment—anything from benches, to swings, to canopies, to water—and bring them into the realm of art. I create a level of connection to the familiar while highlighting elements of awe and beguilement, often using existing artifacts from the site and retrofitting them to create a micro public square or landmark that encourages creative patterns of use. The works are spirited, accessible, participatory, and very often unexpected. By considering behavioral design and combining strong visuals with dynamic elements that are activated by people and changes in ambient light and weather, the resulting work is in constant flux. The idea is to surprise while fostering a sense of community around an unlikely object or site.
