"I enter the natural landscape; in this field I let go of the comforts I feel for contained, readily defined space. Out of this, I have begun to discover a kind of non-space, one that consists of every object connected in a mesh extending deep into time. The variety of its components building an endless system of dynamic uncontrollable nature. I want this mesh to hold me, even if only for a moment, to understand it’s sentiments and complexities. I collect a specimen from its body, and place it in my pocket. After the departure from its origins I imagine the tugging and rearrangement of the mesh; changing dynamics, points letting go and lines re-connecting. This object, removed from its system is implemented into another where I can imagine the tendrils attached and the space in-between."
