excerpts from journal 8/99

happy that people are responding so positively to the show.I believe that I communicated. The work is indeed popular. It is only partly my subject matter. Talking to the public, but in a truly democratic way; wanted to provide something for everyone... Wanted to make beauty out of conflicting emotions and implications.Wanted to touch a chord while insisting on the primacy of a sculptural environment, by manipulating strong physical responses to florescent color, geometrical line ,and depth of spacial arrangement. Content is inherent through cliched structural constructs and references to ideas of the future and the environmental issues of our planets ecology. Science fact.
