Description of Total Life an ongoing body of work: Total Life is the result of creating objects and then documenting them to the best of my ability. These artifacts are made by way of an imagined people. People from a region tentatively named Sodden Shadows. A permanently damp woods, with a dense, dark, canopy. Potentially on the back of a great lizard, whose eventual migration will forever change these conditions.

The objects, their use, meaning, and origin are as much a puzzle to me as anyone. I like to think of it as a kind of archeological fan fiction: At their best they hold nostalgia and mystique. Polly Pocket meets Institutional Archives.
