I consider each object in the site-specific installation as a discrete unit of expression (like a word), made from found materials, and made of itself.  I consider color as itself as well.  Objects group together like a sentence, a non-linear lyric narrative like a paragraph or poem.  I use found objects gleaned from the waste stream of our late-capitalist building boom, recycling centers, and my local hardware store, rather than the art supply store, finding great value in marks of age and use.
