The Kafka Project works are based on 18th and 19th C European Cabinets of Curiosity, which were recepticles of naturalist, odd, curious, and rare collections of objects by mostly aristocrats, landed gentry, amateur scientists and eccentrics.

These works use Russian and German 19th C and early 20th C short stories by Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Robert Walser and Kafka, as generators.

In each piece, a story is hand-written on a found cabinet- often in charcoal pencil- and translated into a language other than its original. Ephemera + found images expand on the themes of magical transformation, existential angst, and ephemerality present in the stories.
