My inspiration often comes from ordinary objects in the site’s social, cultural context or the image of its landscape. With these objects, I am interested in creating a novel but familiar form of art by exercising the use of unusual arrangement, juxtaposition, shift in scale, color, and the extraordinary materials. The interventions intend to offer visitors accessible ways to engage with the surrounding landscape. Blurring the boundary of art and landscape, my practice pursues memorable site-specific art that is visual, graphical, interactive, and experimental.
