It is my intent to be considered for the faculty position. Along with this letter you can find the additinal application requirements a portfolio of recent work, Artist Statement, CV, Teaching Philosophies, student work and a few sample assighnments at the links below. There is additional information about my work and studio practice within this website as well as www.dailyconstitutional.org. I am very excited about my extended studio practice and would like to share it with you. Through the use of sound, video and environment, I have been able to sculpt experiences, rather than objects to experience. I look forward to sharing these sculpted environments with a larger audience, as well as sculpting new experiences, inspired by new and unique spaces. As an additional part of this extended studio practice, I began the submission based publication, Daily Constitutional, to foster dialogue among like minded people and those we encounter.
Daily Constitutional, an artist run publication, is comprised of artists’ writings, artists who write and works made specifically for the publication. The mission of this publication is to provide an outlet and forum for the individual Artist’s voice, rather than the cacophony that is the art world at large (galleries, critics, curators, museums, patrons and finally the artists themselves). To provide a place to express, exchange and discuss, without interpretation, the artist’s opinions, ideas and discoveries within one’s practice. This publication can only be made possible, through the collaboration of individual Artists and Art Organizations. I have included hard copies of the publication for your reading pleasure and if you would like to have copies for the University Library, I would be more than happy to drop them in the mail. I hope that we can foster a dialogue and if you have any questions or would like additional information please feel free to contact me.
