I am fascinated by the connection between memory and place, the resonance of past lives and events evidenced in the architecture, in the landscape, in our behaviors. I really enjoy research, especially when it requires solving complex puzzles.
I love a good challenge—the bigger the better. Impossible is my favorite motivator. I have always been attracted to working at a large scale. I dream of creating work that makes an approach from a mile away or from 1000 feet above ground. Expanding and contracting space, perspective, interacting with architecture, making long and broad strokes—this inspires me. Of course, I am also inspired by new ways to charge the performance space with aerial techniques.
I need to understand how I fit into the world. I am compelled to learn how my work can make a contribution to the causes of civil rights and social justice. Because of the extraordinary people working on the ground, I am inspired to do my part.
