For 20 years I used sound as the primary source material in my artwork. Out
of the detritus of laminated objects that I collected while performing with
an amplified laminator I began assembling artworks that have evolved into
book-like objects. Many of these "books" are actually containers of one sort
or another which house a specific collection of objects or theme. The use
of everyday objects and the spontaneous clipping of The New York Times are
prevalent in my work.
