Artist statement
How does the city - the built environment - affect how we think, feel and behave? With that question in mind, I spent October 2019 in Montreal on a self-directed residency. I narrowed in on people moving through the city, in public places, particularly on the Metro system. This is where I best observed the interplay between people and spaces as they navigated their days, at once individually and collectively. It also tied into my abiding interest in transition, in liminal states, and in temporality. People and cities are in continual states of flux.
