With the world collapsing all around us where and how do we create significance? How do we express our vision, our understanding of the events unfolding? Where do we place ourselves on the continuum of past, now, and forever? As a gift, the present, exists with all times. Every story, every voice, every feeling is joined in the present. This is an expansion of this gift, a repackaging and expansion of the idea of the neatly wrapped vessel for these items. Through the mediums of performance, installation, drawing, sculpture, writing, and recording, I look to give my presence to the present.
