My work is a series of experiments attempting to capture the dynamic of materials subjected to unseen forces, like gravity, pressure, heat, and tension. I use materials that easily conform to the forces they are subjected to such as cloth dipped in resin, liquid wax, and molten metal. Some of the forms are displayed in opposition to how they were formed; contrasting and emphasizing the state change from liquid to solid. That state change is important because it allows me to freeze them at the critical moment that is most revealing of the interaction between energy and matter, making those unseen forces visible.
