I grew up around construction sites with my dad. They are familiar spaces to me, familiar yet because of my visual dyspraxia very inaccessible at the same time. I use my visual dyspraxia as an art generator to create this playful, frustrating, often time-consuming exploration of this particular space. I work with industrial materials to try and visually understand these sites that I have this tensioned relationship with. Photographic techniques and tools help with visually interpreting my hindered perceptions of the world, the physical print acting as this tangible, grounded, real thing that exists and is accessible not only to me, but to everyone. The shapes, forms, and colors start to make sense to me in relation to these sites as they are reused and recycled creating accessibility, and understanding.
