Artist Statement

I don’t know what it is about certain things that just stick in my head lately—a face, a song, or a number. For the last few years I find that when I glance at the clock, it is either 1:11, or 11:11. It doesn’t matter, day or night. I do see other numbers, but this sequence always seems to jump out at me. Why? Is it a coincidence… or are these mystical numbers, my numbers? Lately when it happens, I feel a little like I’m trapped in an episode of the Twilight Zone… in a sort of TW1L1GHT T1ME. Special thanks: John Kirsh, Mark Janicko, Katherine Talcott, Owen Smith, Who New!
