I make temporary sculptures with all sorts of materials and methods of assembly. I photograph these sculptures as they become something else or disintegrate. I call this process “Radical Wabi~Sabi.”
Traditional Wabi~Sabi is an aesthetic discipline that reveres transience and imperfection. It aspires to rough authenticity and silent, elegant beauty - all in a dance of slow evolutionary change.
“Radical Wabi~Sabi” speeds this evolution, forcing the unconventional to achieve momentary transcendence. Each photograph records, as a requiem, the exact moment of a sculpture’s metamorphosis to its next incarnation.
Everything is mutable. Nothing exists beyond the moment of now.
