My work is about creating an art form for the sense of touch. Many of my sculptures are designed to be known through touch as well as sight. I seek to promote and research aesthetic touch through lectures,workshops and conferences and collaborations with scientists, educators and people with visual impairments. I have written a book, Whole Body Seeing: Touch in the Visual Arts.
