The Essential Diagrams
a series of 12 interconnected drawings, scribbles, notes, and diagrams to be displayed like an ever-growing, parasitic spider web in all corners of an exhibition institution.

‘drawings’ on dry lake bed / salt flats in Nevada
the artist’s words:
The dry lake surface is like a giant etch a sketch. Any vehicle moving across it’s surface makes a temporary mark.
Weather destroys all these marks, mostly because of rain and the occasional filling of the basin, but also from sun, freezing, wind, snow, etc.
The area is managed the Bureau of Land Management and has a long history of vehicle use.
I do not ask permission from the Bureau of Land Management to make a drawing. Driving is a permitted activity. An agent of the Bureau of Land Management visited us during work on the 2008 drawing and reminded us to have plenty of water and other supplies. We explained our work and showed him what we were doing. He was kind enough to be careful while leaving our campsite and avoided driving over the composition

from the artist statement that accompanies this series:
“The skin, a single tissue with localized concentrations, displays sensitivity. It shivers, expresses, breathes, listens, loves, and lets itself to be loved, receives, refuses, retreats, its hair stands on the end with horror, it is covered with fissures, rashes, and the wounds of the soul.”1 -Michel Serres
I lift up my shirt with my left hand and carefully touch my lower abdomen with my right hand. My right ring finger delicately runs over a few raised bumps on the right side, directly over the appendix. I look down and count the bumps. Seven raised scars from shingles I had at the age of sixteen. It was a turbulent time. My skin had spoken out about the inner distress. My third year in boarding school, I would often sit in a dark dorm room and silently cry and scream until I felt I didn’t exist anymore. No one listened. The language barrier was aggravating. It was a rigorous regimen for a maladjusted teenager. The sensation of my finger touching the scars, and my abdomen simultaneously feeling the subtle touch, immediately conjures up painful memories of my adolescence.
All senses mingle on the skin, the largest organ of the human body. Not only is it an envelope, a container keeping the body intact and safe, it is also a membrane that allows exchange between the inside and the outside of the body.
