Minutiae is a collection of fingerprint data that have been mapped onto a paper scroll and played through a custom motorized music box. The process of making this piece traces a course from the transcoding of data extracted from photographic images into drawings that map the data as geometrically related plot points. These points are punched out of a paper scroll and the resulting sonification transforms the 2D drawings into 3D space through sound and motion.
The desire to create interpersonal exchanges beyond architectural boundaries became a personal undertaking for me when I traveled with my family and a small group to assist in the development of a childrens camp at a remote village in the Cree nation of Nemaska in Northern Quebec.

Skin 1 is a cast of the artists' torso in paper supported by a metal armature. This piece uses the material processes of dehydration and slumping to form an association to the fragility of the body.

Entre is a series of contours mapping the surface of the body as elevations and projecting the images sequentially into space. These forms, referencing the 3D motion of sound waves through air or vibrations through water, develop a visual language that negotiates transitory modalities in an interchange with the surrounding environment.
