I usually find myself wrestling with issues like time and memory. The never ending curiosity to understand how our perception of the world comes together inside our brains hunts me. How does the mind come together? Sometimes it seems as if the mind is a dress with many pockets. Memories seem true and vivid or inaccurate and unreal. 

How does one differentiate between what is real or not? During this process, I retreat into a world of materials where I get lost in curiosity and exploration…always looking for the answer that sometimes comes and other times, it evades me. I try to make things simple by organizing and clustering themes into lines of inquiry. These lines of inquiry are sometimes open, closed or bifurcating into new lines of inquiry. This is done in an effort to make sense of what I am doing, but sometimes this process complicates things further.
