"Visiting nearby health and human services facilities in the Oceanside area, I was introduced to a range of programs created for the betterment of life for both individuals and families. While they addressed a diverse spectrum of issues such as mental health, substance abuse, aging and veterans’ affairs, it quickly became apparent that their common focus centered on the process of transition; aiding in the navigation from an adverse place, situation or mindset to another hopefully better and more sustainable one. Occupying a space betwixt and between, I began to see parallels to this in both the function of the lobby and in the ongoing development of the area from seaside resort and marine base to its evolving residential growth. While considering these relationships, l imagined this process of ongoing change expressed as the remnants of historic watercraft, whimsically coming to life, making and remaking themselves, in a process of ongoing metamorphosis."
