In my research, I draw inspiration from the disciplines of cognitive science, philosophy, and architecture. Using the tools of mapping, patterning, and receiving inspiration from bottom-up construction in which small interactions create larger entities, I produce forms that allude to living systems, natural phenomena, and architectural structures. By using a process of pattern recognition and pattern generation, both finding and fabricating forms, I negotiate the boundary between randomness and structure.
