The world can be divided into the familiar and unfamiliar. The boundary between the two is fluid and through experience certain elements from one side move to the other. The change from unfamiliar to familiar, and vice versa, is a key component in personal insight. It brings out new understanding. By examining and altering the familiar relationships between imagery, ideas and media I work to alter everyday object or situation to facilitate this shift.
