"'Doubt By Water' is a form that I’ve been thinking about for a while. It starts with a two-faced image. That’s really the core of the whole work...getting a two-faced image (which is more or less like an object) into a meaningful relationship to space, so I developed this form with the stanchions to give the two-faced image a place. It was an interesting kind of balance to hold so many pieces together while dispersing them throughout an architectural setting."
