Artist Statement - Transition
In silent mutation
A sleeping possibility
One in one hundred thousand
Identity meets injury
Anticipating the moment when the information will reveal itself
The reasons why and what for and the ending
Expectation meets alteration
Observed becomes the onlooker
Into the shadows and away from the light
Information requires interpretation
Realization, comprehension and other big words are pending
Nullified, quashed, invalidated, annulled, reversed, abolished
I fold and unfold inside flight
A flutter, a hope, a chance, a memory
An endless flow of air and dust
I am still and breathing in and out
I begin again
