Artist Statement

My art, design, and research work is motivated by an interest in how conflict is represented and reconciled within culture and within personal spaces. My approach is inquiry-based, non-hierarchical, and experimental. Studio-based experiments explore text, code, image, sound, and motion, often generating results where compositions are ever-shifting, open and fragmented. In my multimedia work and series of works on paper, I incorporate layers of the imaginary with those that are concrete. I aim to create multivalent emotional experiences that consider the trace materiality of digital and analog making, that show the complexity of the world and of data, and that explore meanings within the systems that bind nature, humanity, and place.
