My body of work concentrates on the post-industrial landscapes of abandoned marble quarries in Vermont and most recently, Tennessee. As nature reclaims what man once created, these ruins retain a sublime beauty all their own. I have documented and researched these sites for over a decade, collecting video, archival images, photos, and oral histories about the quarries. The Vermont Project includes mixed media prints , carved marble sculptures, and a collaboration with Judd Mulkerin (see video link below), creating immersive installations of sound, image and light in the quarries.
