I have innate curiosity and fascination with small things. Memoir was inspired by remembrance of my grandmother and my aunt. After I completed the little room I thought, "OMG, this is a representation of my brain!" It's full of stuff, a lot of it's disorderly, and everything has meaning to me. I have low tolerance for disorder, chaos, and mess. I always want to put it in order, and curiosity contributes to mess. The tension between chaos and order is a force informing everything I do. I'm learning to live with it.
Several of these assemblages were inspired by specific people, some began with serendipity and an object that ignited my imagination.
