His works establish a connection between objects, people and the environment to create a material narrative in space and time, within a landscape which creates the context for actions that trigger relationships of affection and conflict, poetry and politics. He often organises his works as archives or collections, from which qualities such as order, disorder, cadence, chance and chaos emerge.
