DOTS, 2005


Being an urban dweller unable to regularly gaze upon the stars because of light pollution, I felt unable to properly place myself in the grand scheme of the universe, which is something I find essential to my sanity. So, I began to create my own sky, examining the universe point by point. But through the process of making these drawings, I saw similar systems everywhere I looked. My daily reflections referenced not only the cosmos, but also the city at night, aerial maps, skywriting, fireworks, video games, LED signs, clover fields, cellular structure, cancerous growths, tears, snow, etc.  Although this body of work started as a reaction to the world above it quickly became about the world we live in.
