In my practice, I give extended attention to materials and situations that are concealed by their commonness and acute specificity. I am guided by a quasi-magical / quasi-analytical belief that these fragments in my environment are somehow keystones to broader structures that I don't know how to understand. Legibility is the degree of ease with which experiences, signs, and symbols convey meaning based on their appearance. The capacity for something to communicate hinges on its visibility, though a visible object is not necessarily a legible one. In both looking and making, I am searching for a form that can disclose this ambiguous space.
Objects are always inherently more than their discernible qualities. Consistently failing to communicate is still a version of communication. My engagement with objects is entangled with the same systems that render them meaningless. In my practice, these conditions are foundational.
