Learning to function as a catalyst within set reactions of elemental forces, accelerating the developmental processes of time, I internalize the role of alchemical mediator in my artistic practice.  Driven to make large scale sculpture in real time, I create in an aquatic environment.  This alternative workspace reduces the confines of both gravity and friction.  Submerging myself completely in a vessel of cold water, I pressure-inject wax from above and below.  The interaction reconfigures the structure of the molten wax as it spreads and solidifies.  Layers of mesh grids suspended underwater form a three-dimensional drawing board for the wax extrusions. To extend the length and girth of the forms, I coddle the wax upon entry, gently restraining the influx of material and allowing the semi-molten wax to coagulate and bloom.  Submerging other individuals underwater with me, I encase them in wax extrusions.  Underwater video and photography record the transfiguration of both wax and body. These event-based sculptures examine the dynamics of closeness, proximity, and fluidity between artist, materials, and surroundings.
