This body of work began around the year 2000, with an interest in transforming my use of written texts to diagrams. I was also interested in incorporating objects – an activity that relates to my sound installations and performances. Most of the diagrams are from found sources, some of which I had actually rendered while working as a mechanical illustrator in the auto industry years earlier. This work was exhibited at Mott Community College, Flint, Michigan under the title of "Sublime Machinations" in 2002 and later in a show titled "Throwing Voices" at Ditstrict Arts Gallery, Birmingham, Michigan in 2005.
