Within my practice, I attempt to disarticulate certain social structures and conventions by restructuring these relationships and creating objects and installation environments that reflect these rearticulated ideas. The exhibition Particulation restructured from memory a portion of my family's first house in California. Disarticulated elements from the actual house were cast in translucent wax, creating a sculptural object saturated with a ghostly transparency. Further activating the space created by the cast structure were the embedded videos and sounds of archived family conversations and gatherings, all of these elements were manipulated to ebb and swell as they interacted with the installation environment and the viewer. Particulation reasserted value from a dislocated memory and restructured a fractured social construct in its place by fusing the architectural presence of a house, recreated from memory and family history, with the actual space of the gallery.
