I organize imagery in an attempt to reduce chaos and find balance through a process of classification. These quiet maps are ordered bliss, evidence of anxiety eased. My hope is that they bring a sense of tranquil play and completeness amidst the raw imperfections of each disc. This process of sorting and classifying is how we make sense of our environment, beginning with recognizing patterns of black and white mobiles in the crib, acquiring language, and assigning attributes to blocks on the kindergarten floor. As adults, we create order to meet personal and societal needs, be it for destruction or social equity. The order we create and categories we develop can be destructive or productive. These discs are an alphabet populating space in which the viewer engages kinesthetically, inviting the experiential learner to encounter patterns, categories, and to reflect on their origins. My hope is that the viewer creates divisions and categories while remaining fluid between the binaries the discs summon.
