Paper dartboards make up the bulk of the raw material I use in my work. I extract rings of wound paper and pull them apart until I get to the outer edge of the board. The rings of wound paper are then unwound into long strips of paper. All that’s remaining of the dartboard’s color and pattern is on the edge of these long strips of paper.
As I rewind the paper strips, new patterns emerge, intricate spirals and concentric circles replace the dark and light wedges, numbers and text that used to be a dartboard. I work the rewound strips into different shapes and combine them with long sections of fragmented text or pattern to create images that reference the dynamic nature of the world around us.
