"Relationships to places may also find expression through the agencies of myth, prayer, music, dance, art and architecture, and, in many communities, recurrent forms of religious and political ritual. Thus represented and enacted - daily, monthly, seasonally, annually - places and their meanings are continually woven into the fabric of social life, anchoring it to features of the landscape and blanketing it with layers of significance..." -Wisdom Sits in Places: Notes on a Western Apache Landscape, Keith H. Basso

Decisions made to inhabit a space vary. Sometimes spiritual beliefs and sensual reactions hold people to a site. Sometimes space is acquired under circumstances of greed and power. I am interested in the origins of structures. My work is a response to the formal and conceptual decisions as well as historical motives of a particular time and place.
