"It’s the many layers of relation that make the work effective...When you see 'Doubt By Water' as a group, it’s operating as an object. But as you use it to pull someone through space, it functions more like an image, an icon. So the piece flickers between a three-dimensional experience and a kind of two-dimensional image. I really wouldn’t know how to describe what this work is. But it has a particular way of moving the viewer through space and through image space."
