A great deal of my work involves an engagement with the ecology of a given area, and an active collaboration with natural forces including tides, animals, erosion and chance. This series represents photographic documentation of works from a series of site installations constructed on the tidal plain on the Outer Cape where I have spent several months a year for many years. The materials are what is at hand – rock, kelp, shells, etc.

I have established a kind of intimacy with the landscape that I hope is evident from the work. Most are constructed about 20 minutes walk from the nearest public access point to an area of the National Seashore and only a handful of people see the work in-situ. The pieces are always intended to be temporal and have a minimal presence. It is an area I walked nearly every day during the warmer months. My intent is to create a kind of personal natural history and is as much about the meditative process of walking and looking closely, as it is about making.
