Through a complex network of forms and information, I seek to investigate histories and literatures forgotten, misplaced, and buried. My interest in history, a materialization of the forgotten, and the labor-intensive actions of hand-carving, re-writing, and painting, stem from a desire to re-perform the past to better understand the present.”
