A video installation and a continuing time-based work shot in urban settings of Omote Sando, Tokyo and in the rural desert of Anza Borrego, California. The project documents the flow of wind in urban and rural settings, navigating these environments by means of a hand held sail. The wind current becomes a metaphor for the artist's psyche.
A site-specific work that generates a topography. Constructed of steel rods, the work makes reference to a triangulated irregular network (or TIN), a digital model that uses triangulation of point data to render a landscape.

Approaching an Exchange
An inter-temporal "exchange" initiated in Dartmoor National Park, England now comes to New Mexico. Visitors are invited to experience a film and off-site visits to a nearby archaeological site, where they can add their voices to the growing community of participants.
Traveling Boxes Albuquerque
A series of metaphysical and elementally themed boxes. Participants travel with the boxes to land art sites and on the ceramic forms contained in boxes, record their visual and/or prose response to site and theme. Each participant layers their response over the previous participant and at the project's conclusion ceramic vessels are fired fusing all layers into a single record.

By serving bread and jam in the gallery within an art installation, viewers are invited to inhabit a creative space, contemplate the cultural and agricultural implications of food culture, and to consider the value of slow food and hand made objects in daily life.
