The human experience compels us to assign meaning to the meaningless. As a photographer, I collect visual fragments of the world around me—the souvenirs of our intentions, actions, politics, and idiosyncrasies. This work is based on apophenic tendencies and the innate human desire to organize chaos in order to comprehend reality. Our intrinsic inability to disregard the mundane and then assign value to the meaningless is what makes everything inherently meaningful.
