My work illustrates imagined spaces and implied spaces—spaces that make sense to our eyes but not always to our minds. By using graphic materials like cut paper, neon, and glass, I extend flat drawings and patterns into a slippery space of “2.5 dimensions”, coined by neuroscientist David Marr. My goal is to create a limbo of flat and 3-D, real and imaginary, or tangible and intangible.
