My work examines the subjective experience of material, time, and space within and around the body. Through acts of derivation and repetition, interdisciplinary works form a continuous loop between matter and its human-made mythologies. Entropy and order inform process and content because they mirror strategies used by bodies to sense the world and, in turn, by the universe. Works overlap the literal with the abstract, shifting between materialism and idealism in a never-ending consumption of space, light, and time.
Parallax (2017, pictured left) and other works function like nesting dolls, alluding to multiple realities operating simultaneously at any given point in space. With parallax, a projected short film reappears as abstracted objects within the installation to create an assemblage of body and environment. Water on screen becomes a blue hue enveloping the physical space; the soundtrack of wind and heartbeats plays while a small fan blows, enmeshing sound, sight, and touch in the viewer; a ladder and broom expand the installation to contexts that precede it.
Works subvert Western concepts of individuality as the root of identity. Instead, boundaries between outside and in are blurred formally and conceptually to displace corporeal expectations just beyond the familiar. By reframing what feels inevitable, the flawed mind appears as the silent author of personal narratives.
