Astoundingly clever; judicious and methodical, I am sensitive and perceptive with an eye for delicate and subtle detail. My talents and capabilities are wide; each being intensely researched, studied, practiced and passionately pursued. I create and educate simultaneously, and in so doing, lead.

Some Philosophy

There is a dynamic in the intelligence of things, be they sentient or otherwise. One of my first reactions to the term 'design' is to counter it with the word 'dasein'. I do this for both superfluous and thoughtful reasons. Design Dasein seems to flow off the tongue whether or not the German pronunciation is used for dasein. The other, more thought provoking consideration is that, in German, 'dasein' literally means 'being there'. Design 'being there' in english then takes on many iterations and perturbations of the phrase based on interpretation:

  • Design being there as in a design is present
  • Design being there as in a designed entity is present
  • Design being there as in the presence in some place has been planned or mapped and so forth

Finally, and most importantly in my consideration, there is Martin Heidegger's interpretation of Dasein as 'being in the world.' This is not to say there is a 'being' of some kind in a 'world', but instead a conglomerate phrase understood as a whole. It's a totality concept which I am actually quite comfortable leaving as is in Heidegger's own words: [Dasein is] that entity which in its Being has this very Being as an issue… Dasein seems to be not just the being-ness of being, but that being's consideration of its being-ness. All this, of course, leads to very silly sounding conversation, but such things happen when we dissect and discern to simpler forms.

Disclaimer: I am working on a much more cohesive design for this site that will be driven by the CMS Wordpress. Naturally, I have to do it all my way, which means implementing my own design as a template/theme. Progress is great and continues at a decent pace when I'm not grading, prepping for a show, making art in the first place, working on a client project and/or making the occasional latte. I beg your forgiveness with this current site as it is a quick, but dynamic, hand coded placeholder. The new site is very different, but it will be amazing.
