The part of life that continues to fascinate me most is how human beings affect each other. I’m especially curious about the strength and beauty of the collective. What roles people will play, how they’ll interact, and what they’ll contribute is always a mystery when they first assemble. I love to see how groups end up fitting together, sometimes in surprising ways, to create a whole.
In this piece separate blocks of wood interconnect, each affecting the others until they become one. Shaping the singular form also changes the individual parts. Ultimately the collective generates something distinct from the original components. This work celebrates the intricacy of collaboration and the vast potential of community to create possibility and hope.
