Whenever I walk in the landscapes of this planet ~ wandering among the presentations made by the continual divulgence of the land and the light ~ I am inspired by the patterns I see  which reveal the forces and the energies that have shaped each view, or rock, or mossy bank along a channeling stream ~ or long-growing, mulish tree, bearing up and gnarling at its fate ~ I wander among these installations in the wilderness ~ with the tools of my attention revealing sculptures from the mass of materials at hand ~ I feel myself responding to the artefacts on display ~ the forever burgeoning fecund splurge of it! ~ in the same way as I do on one of those rare occasions in an art gallery when I come round a corner and some artist wallops me with a thing s/he’s put there ~ the world drops away from your feet as your head lofts to a new space above the rafters of your world, an attic which opens onto the universe....


this is what I want to bring into my video work, my sculptural installations....


if not the full experience, then at least a vision inspired by that experience, which might pass on a taste of it, and inspire others to look around ~ to see ~ in an inspired way in their own subsequent viewings of the world.
