„I believe that architectural structures act as both repositories and as vehicles for memory by profoundly influencing culture and identity and by providing a tangible framework through which facets of a society can be expressed. I have been inspired to build a body of work dealing with how identity is influenced by the types of architectural edifices present in a given landscape. All must take into account the forgotten factory, asylum, or prison. Neglected, ignored, or often instilling rancor in the public, these buildings paradoxically offer one the most scintillating of subject matter: how beautiful the bitter pill. My work is not merely a method of documentation, but a visual forum where one may question what it is about these edifices that instills such emotion in people.”
