My pieces are experiments in the literal and metaphoric manipulation of linguistic, graphic and organic patterns. Pattern is visual, aural and spatial, it is intentional and organic. I am drawn to the overt and decorative patterning found in tiling, texts,graphs and currently alpha numeric code, genetic sequences and dot matrixes. These patterns lead to materials and processes like player piano rolls with punched patterns and printed text, the wonderful specificity and abstraction of scientific diagrams, the organic textures in stitched, coiled and tiled surfaces and the pulsing photons of projections.
