Artist Statement:

             My work hovers on the edge of control and chaos, meticulous planning and seemingly random occurrences. This installation is part of an ongoing body of sculptural work that uses magnets to highlight how tenuous the bond can be between a firm grip and total lack of control. We forget about the air space the negative space when we're in a large room. I am using magnetic tension to highlight the present architecture. That tension is often embodied in various elements held in magnetic suspension, teetering on the edge of falling apart.
