What is one thing about your work that most people don't know?
I conceive, develop, implement and install exhibits and art installations that attract and involve an extremely diverse community of viewers that visit the public library. In turn, it is intended that these ideas evoke, generate and provoke new concepts. One thing someone might not know about my work is that it is important to be mindful in a variety of ways. People have different life experiences, and you want them to walk away having actively thought about what they see and hear. The goal is to add or grow what the visitor already knows, and/or previously thought about a subject. The intent to engage, interact and participate hopefully brings new perspectives to individuals. Conceptualization and presentation of ideas must be given much consideration in order for the maker to be effective. One must never assume the viewer comes to the exhibit knowing the information the creator knows and is exhibiting.
What makes you most proud of the work you do?
To have an end product that communicates and provides new information to audiences. For those viewers to walk away from an exhibit having insightful experiences that change the way they formerly thought about a subject or situation.
