Swiss Residency

The work is marked by an extreme interest in the ambience and culture that is uniquely Switzerland. As I lived, worked, and drove the roads in Switzerland for two months; I gained a deep reverence for the road system engineering that traversed the country. My GPS and maps showed how the roads are aesthetically similar to my current body of work. But since the Aeschlimann Company had given me road materials to work with, I decided to experiment with those materials and make work based on how and why we choose to transport ourselves and the goods of our interest.
