Experiments in Resistance
    In this body of work, entitled Experiments in Resistance, I press under-glazed and fired clay slabs into ceramic troughs containing wet, usually dyed cement. The clay is pressed at various depths and at different times in the cement's drying time, allowing me to study a vocabulary of haptic pressure as well as the displacement caused from a soft collision between material bodies. I am searching for a concrete archive of resistance, refusal, and displacement as it emerges from the body, and before it becomes connected to language, thoughts, belief systems, and conflict. My materials - clay and concrete - belong both to domesticity and to war. What are the ways in which consequence and impact are physically entwined? What are the traces left in our impressions? What does the memory or record of a body's displacement reveal in its wake?
