" What makes a place? It's this question that compels me to explore it and step beneath the surface. When I move through the layers of a city, I discover systems and gather countless stories. There is romance, tragedy and comedy. Desires, secrets and facts. It's a personal geography and echoes intersections of culture, environment, history and economics. Everything pushed and pulled by connectivity, techonology, migration and the borders we create around the natural and built environment. I draw on these perennial narratives - playfully, using visual metaphors - to compose a new story about the sense of a place and its people today. "
