  Artist Statement  
Influenced by previous works such as Simon Patterson’s “The Great Bear,” Ed Ruscha’s photobooks, and, perhaps, the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher and Alan Sekula, I am interested in challenging audiences’ perceptions of how information is understood, consumed, documented and interpreted. On a formal level my project’s documents explore ideas and relationships of image and colour, while also examining issues around archiving and information architecture.

The project, a large scale, gridded composite of every bus stop in Surrey BC presents a blizzard of site-specific info which becomes an informal portrait of the city and its topography.
