Using squares, which sometimes form rectangles, I work with the design concept of active and passive space. In the active space, I construct and attach images, collaged papers, original photographs, alphabetic letters, numbers, and objects. The letters and numbers are based on my research into the Proto-Sinaic letters and their meanings. The passive space is meditative and quiet; its focus is texture. The three-dimensional found objects are "activators." They are visual vehicles inviting the viewer to make a more physical connection to the imagery. The addition of common hardware contributes to the idea of strength and structure. -- Chris Fulmer
