Every single organism on this planet requires water to thrive. Though water is constantly in a state of flux and forever transforming, all of it has already existed since Earth's creation. The water that you and I consume every day, along with the water that is moving through this tree at this very moment, has already passed through and aided the survival of countless beings. If water was sentient, imagine all of the memories and experiences it would possess from previous lives.

The project aims to intersect awareness and action, engaging the campus community on an accessible platform to create a shared experience that is at once social and didactic.

Steel, Found Object
This sculpture is an exploration of architectural form and scale. The
tranquil nature of the garden violently meets, the cold, chaotic construction
of a Dystopic high-rise- like mesh of steel and retrofitted junk.

I was interested in creating an interactive experience for Art in the
Garden. With the confusion of modern life there is a need for a quiet

that is reminiscent of the fantasy of childhood and the awe of the

White Clay, Brown Clay, Steel
The first image children draw when first learning how to draw, scribbles seem simplistic in nature. This piece investigates their understated complexity when forced to interact in the 3-dimensional world. Though each scribble is different in size and shape, when stacked, they cease to exist as single objects and rather become extensions of one another.
