The following are brief abstracts about my sculptures...

According to Gilles Deleuze (1994), art is an experience that is distinct from the empirical moment. This distinction, Stephen Zepke (2008) explains through Félix Guattari, is conditioned by ‘heterogeneous durations’. These do not obey representational knowledge-claims...
