The frontier has always served as a repository for American optimism. In my work, two different manifestations of the frontier are at odds with one another: The West – the frontier of the past – the embodiment of historic mythologies and creation myths of America, is at odds with Space – the newest frontier – a boundless and infinite container that holds our hopes and aspirations for the future. My work is a stage on which this battle over past and future, of expectations and experimentation, is waged.
