There is no real separation in my mind between working with installation and working (or playing) with language. The words and the physical forms strike up a conversation both in the actual space and in my spatial imagination, and connections easily and naturally come together.  The objects, gestures, and events I set up in space overlap with how we encounter the words in our bodies and through our senses.  While much of my process occurs intuitively and below the conscious level, words make my thoughts grow and take shape, giving form to feelings that demand to be known. Words may emerge as an impulse, a memory, or a material; they may erupt in a dream, wrap themselves around an object, or suffuse a place.  I may find them through a rhyme, a proposition or a poem. The language does not explain but expands my meaning.
