THIS MEANS SOMETHING...THIS IS IMPORTANT.

These photographs focus on how my son constructs the environment around him. This

collaborative work between the two of us is a way of engaging him as a subject and

participant through his heightened sense of form, color, and composition, directed by my

awareness of art and photography. My approach to creating these images is within the context

of how he sees a situation and my interpretation of how his minds works. In this performance

toys and stacked household objects turn into sculptures, and my son becomes an inquisitive

character within this constructed realm. By describing these moments and fabrications,

I complicate the experience of childhood, and simultaniously create images about the

complexities of his sophisticated sense of construction.
