My work is influenced by work performing wildlife monitoring on the ocean. I am interested in the interaction of protocols imposed upon systems and the chance observations made within those parameters. Most of my work involves repetition and/or ritual to some extent. Wildlife surveys are of most value when the same territory is documented over a defined period of time. While scientific field work is intended to be completely objective, the observer always influences the data in some small way. Most of my work, in some ways, documents the mundane or banal, but I hope in doing so, a greater awareness of time and place will be evident.
