This Is Just The Part You Think You See, 2017 is one in the Dahs and Dits series using Morse Code to explore meaning and understanding.

My work functions as a metaphor for how we navigate and understand our lived experience. It is based in a strong connection between knowing, understanding and discovery. And for as long as I can remember I have been interested in ideas about perception.

I have explored this in a variety of ways: through counting, walking, drawing, multiples, and installation. I have also been collecting sound; sounds of work, sounds of silence. I have often made work that is challenging for its allusive quality. Regardless of the form, a collective thread of knowing and understanding materializes. My goal is to generate work that at once discloses and withholds, that provides small spaces of clarity as we continue on our way.
