"I am obsessed with converting time into beautifully intricate objects of mystery and contemplation that are inspired by architecture and astronomy. My processes are laborious and intensive, demanding deep knowledge and acute skill, which counter today's impulse for immediacy. My relentless need for progress and to make a difference in the world push me to use these processes in groundbreaking ways. While the techniques I work in are rooted in ancient history, I often combine them in ways that have never been done and employ contemporary technology such as micro TIG welding and digital compilations and video animations of original analog work."
