I'm a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores identity and technology. My work consists of individual pieces that have the ability to stand alone, while also supporting and contextualizing each other. I seek to push the boundaries of how we interact with and perceive new media by using unexpected approaches and materials. Often installed as themed tableaus, the work is intended to be experienced through various sensate strategies by asking the audience to not simply “view” but to also touch and feel. Having been trained in classical studio arts, I often incorporate traditional materials and methods into my work. These multi-media presentations provide the audience with an immediacy of engagement, making complex narratives personalized and accessible.
