1) Why is the earth important to you as an artist?

Earth is home; it's the penultimate context that frames my questions, concerns,  and existence as an artist.

2) How do you think your work in the "Strategies surface???" will change the perceptions of the world around us?

The work invokes the awareness that the world around us isn't transformed strictly through physical actions that we enact upon it but also by our perceptions; our vision.
