These are projects of flight and phantom. Mirror bombs that fall from the sky, icons that flee and leap, characters that stand on the edge of light and dark, free fall and gravity, disco and the eclipse.

These are projections, too, about a culture that is constantly being revisioned through the making of objects that defy the normal and foresee the unknown. Puppets become political allegories, spirits dwell in the everyday, and military hardware scatters streaks of light.

Finally, they are projectiles, pursuing trajectories in their tumescent forms or machinations, propelled by the force and energy of art as some kind of weapon, committed to the social and the real in the fullness of fantasy, poised to disarm.
