“Since 1983, when work on my house and studio began, the project has undergone a variety of transformations, expansions, assimilations—simply put, it has followed a path of growth and discovery.

I now gather some observations, memories, and moments, all of which emerge through one biographical detail or another—an inevitable outcome when writing on such a personal work, a work that by its evolving nature is both my first and my most recent project.”
