This work is a narrative based on past and possible ‘future’ memories. The destruction of any part of our fragile ecological web may result in our recalling natural forms only through our own constructions. I imagine a time where we remember and venerate those creatures and places that are gone forever. We revert to forms we cobble together from bits of wood, making them simultaneously more intimate and more remote, as the real creatures and places exist only in memory. The wood textures I use are a metaphor for the careful building of memories, one board at a time.
