Humans are pattern seekers- finding order in chaos, complexity in randomness.
It seems obvious complex outcomes must arise from complex behaviors.

Constructed from plastic ribbons that bend when heated or exposed to bright light, this piece explores sequentially, visually and dynamically the path from simplicity to apparent intricate purpose.
Complexity is in the eye of the beholder.
