PROCESS

My miniature projects often begin with a photograph. Either from something I’ve seen in a book or on Instagram or iPhone snaps taken while traversing New York City. From there I decide if the challenge will be a close-to-perfect replica or something more interpretive. Using cardboard and foam core and whatever scraps I have laying around, I start with the the basic structure and build out from there.  The fun is often in the infinitesimal details--old newspapers, boxes, cigarette butts, a broken payphone, a missing brick, graffiti--the detritus of everyday life.  

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

“When you shrink the city down to fit in the palm of your hand, you allow a kind of shambolic delight back into the universe. In this process, the observer is no longer small in a big world. They are transformed, larger than life, forced into a new uncanny space of liminality. The insignificant becomes significant. The familiar becomes unfamiliar. Trash turns to treasure.”
