The Memory Palace

In my work, I conceptualize meditative journeys through personal past and the ancient world. Drawing inspiration from classic architecture, modern architectural theory, world literature and historical texts, I explore themes of belonging, communication, and language. In addition to memory, I find myself increasingly utilizing light and shadow as material. In my 2019 solo show "The Memory Palace", the art was sometimes more the shadow of the constructed objects than the objects themselves. Such was the case with "Haram Xafra", an illuminated pyramid structure, and a piece also called "The Memory Palace" in which light was projected through fabric etched with images of sacred architecture
