“Personal Geographies” speaks to our sense of place, the impact space and place have on us as humans, and the impacts we have on the land. As places change, our memories waver and shift, leaving only traces of lost environments. Just as memory builds in layers, I work in layers, physically and metaphorically. Geologic strata and layers of human anatomy help me envision the planet as organism. Computer mapping systems (GIS) use layers of information to create complex interactive map images, while I compile information that burrows into my work. I build images through accumulation of materials including paper, photographs, maps, and melting ice. Paper stacks up to become sculptural, photographs form videos, ice leaves waterlines, as if flood and drought had their way with the work.
