Explaining my artistic synthesis and conceptualization involves a singular examination of time, human behavior, architectural space, regional place and feel, and “off the wall” experimentation, and how all integrate pentatically. In a previous installation time and historic native cultures were the conceptual generators for expressing form and movement along a rope bench. The bench is reconfigurable responding to user and site while maintaining historic integrity unique to Liberty Station. Artistic gestures are experienced through use and engagement. The first step in my synthesis is time. To me, time is more than a number. It is a sum of all human mistakes and successes that inform our daily routines for better or worse. To tap into the essence of a site, my vision guides down a rabbit hole of historical research and social understanding. Once I discover a catalyst through research, I then begin looking at the identity of place. Lastly, an abstraction occurs. It is hard to say what the abstraction will be, because each abstraction is creatively different, and uniquely tied to place and site.
