When art and science collide in the fluid stream of human consciousness, gods and demons are taxonomically categorized, and the unruly assumptions of objective reason are set free from their prisons at the base of human consciousness.

In 2001, the Contemporary Museum of Honolulu offered me opportunity to exhibit. The body of  works visited each phase of my personal development. A new concept was The Bridge, a construct of thirteen separate vessels, assembled on site to form a free standing Roman arch. It was a new organizational principle, in that it offered a structural assemblage of identical elements, each of which was writ upon differently depending upon where in the structure it was located. It was the first work of mine which modeled cultural construction.
