In August 2009, I experienced the devastating power that uncontrolled water can have as it destroyed homes and tossed lives into turmoil during the Silver Creek flood.

"The Lake Series" uses the dichotomy of water as a foundation for videos that explore elements of the human condition. Water can be intimate or expansive, life giving or life destroying. It is eternal, ephemeral, and in a constant state of change. Each work’s title is meant to be open-ended, its meaning malleable for the viewer while expressing a specific human characteristic that provides a starting point for consideration.
