Selective Memory no. 1: 8 Centavos + Thread on fabric + 10" x 10" + 2006    In this work I enlarge forlorn details taken from the collective consciousness – such things found in old books, antique engravings, postage stamps, etc – isolating them from their original context and intricately embroidering them into a newer surface, mostly fabrics found either in my closet, my friend's closet, or at my local thrift store. I like mixing the old with the older with the intention of creating a whole new visual experience.
