For four weeks, piece-by-piece, I deliberately positioned more than 300 onyx stones into place. An act of repetition which requires me to be fully present on the task in front of me. Each stone is attached to strings of black nylon, carried from the working table, and consciously added to the installation. Through trial and error, as well as endless patience, the piece eventually comes together. Once the piece is finished, it’s disassembled, making the act futile.

Practicing Construction Destruction focuses on the process of the installation. The result is impermanent.
