This work is a series of evolving openly constructed, linear steel forms which in contrast to their material, appear surprisingly delicate, like line drawings in space. This work explores the metaphorical transitions between the internal and external, specifically related to aspects of memory and the mind: how the internal, that which would be the contained, protected, carried, personal, and the external, the container, protector, carrier, begin to interweave and overlap in time. Outlining bizarre cage-like forms signals the trace of a desire to contain and protect the fragile and fleeting moments of life, while also emphasizing the variation among our internal processes of experience and the pliable quality of our imaginations.
