Statement: Working with the twin ideas of pataphysics and alchemy, I explore the science of possibilities with my sculpture and sculptural installation. I incorporate my degree in biological sciences from the University of California, Davis and my degree in sculpture, from California State University Chico, to solve each sculptural problem. While at Chico I discovered the concept of pataphysics, first introduced to the world by Alfred Jarry in 1930, who claimed it to be the science of imaginary solutions. My results are playfully plausible constructions perched on the boundary between what we can see and what we can't.
