"I am interested in projects that take some time to unfold as opposed to an object that is static. These steel plates, while appearing static, are actually distressing the grass underneath. As time passes the grid will be shifted to reveal a shadow and thus begin the cycle of rejuvenation. Time / Revelator is a story about substance...death...transition...re-birth...continuity and revelation" - Mark Bennion
