All of the work I'm making is symbolic of how complex our human lives have become. One 

could say that it is a record of where we stand in the midst of tremendous technological and scientific advances, and how that inevitably leads to existential questions.

I have been carving inscriptional and bas relief work in stone for 40 odd years. I am the eighth generation of carvers to continue this work at the John Stevens Shop, following faithfully in traditions that reach back thousands of years in human history.

I've chosen to use the skills of stone carving as a means of highlighting the disjunction between our relationship with the physical world and our ever growing desire to live in the digital realm.

This symbolic exploration of human existence opens perspectives that span the subatomic to

the cosmic.
