CommoN is a photo/ video project focusing on words and expressions that are common to everyday conversation.
While such words and expressions are simple, they carry a multitude of meanings.  We fabricate words from steel, prepare them for burning and set them ablaze.  Site specific locations are choosen to provide context for the words.  Additional layers of meaning are then revealed by the power of fire.
We are collaborators; photographer Salem Krieger and sculptor / illustrator Richard Newton.  We have worked on projects together through the years while maintaining an on going discussions about art and culture.
