“start with an empty cup,” recent sculptures from an ongoing project starting with paper coffee cups, taking an every day emblem in different directions. This is a rule-based project that begins with a simple form and tests a tolerance for change. Gestures and structures grow from actions. New ideas emerge from a throw-away line.
