I pass this grain bin almost every day, through every season
and weather change. It brings to mind the wisdom of artist
William Kentridge about the work of the artist,
which suits the nature of my approach.

"One’s memory is not this perfect photographic film that holds an image without changing it.
[It requires] accepting what appears as fact as provisional,
as temporary, as a moment within the larger ambit of
transformation…The job of the artist is to fight against
entropy to keep on taking these fragments and say,
‘What can they become?’ To take the fragments and construct
something provisionally new.
And that’s the link from memory, to fragments,
to the activity of making."
