I go to a place looking for something but nothing in particular. It is a meeting. I bring myself and all of my things. Brenden waits for me there with all of its things. Between me and Brenden there opens a space of imagination and inspiration. I emulate the act of tun building. To build a tun involves clearing a space for yourself, your tools and your belongings, and using the materials on and around your land to build what you need. What I do can be likened to experiential archaeology, except it’s not about interpretation. I pretend, reenact, reiterate, reverse engineer. Things and episodes I find in Brenden reoccur in my drawings and models, and take on new forms. Drawings and models inspire new drawings and models. The work branches out widely, and seems to reveal as much about me as it does about Brenden.
