Artist Statement

The Guide is formed from speculating about the complex interconnections between industrial remnants, architecture, the environment, and people. Industrial tanks and architectural relics become vessels, like pottery, that contain potential. Guide asks the viewer to contemplate the vastness of where we are in time and space, right from where we are in time, in place.
