New York City/Long Island City

For 20 years I used sound as the primary source material in my artwork. Out of the detritus of laminated objects that I collected while performing with an amplified laminator I began assembling artworks that have evolved into book-like objects. Many of these “books” are actually containers of one sort or another which house a specific collection of objects or theme. The use of everyday objects and the spontaneous clipping of The New York Times are prevalent in my work. I like blank walls, tomorrow's headlines and not knowing what I'm doing.
