The desert is an ocean and to travel on the ocean is to make a voyage. The realm of sleep is also an ocean and to travel on the ocean of sleep is a solitary voyage. In the winter of 2016, I spent two weeks camping alone in an enormous dune field along the Sea of Cortez. I was surrounded and held by sand and sky and a quiet so profound that the line between reality and dream became uncertain. Here, alone in this desert, I explored a measure of solitude found only in dreams… This presented object is cargo — an artifact I’ve ferried back from the land of solitude — a fragment of dream, retrieved from a distant shore.

This object  is on exhibit @ Tohono Chul Gallery in Tucson, Arizona from November 10th, 2016 to February 10th, 2017 for the show, “Sonoran Symbiosis.”
