I enjoy thinking about the formation of highly designed habitats and their ability to comfort or cause disease. I like to observe the way living things read spaces/habitats for danger and safety and how meaning is read into what is seen within them, causing fissures between assumption and knowing of the inhabitant.
An interest in children’s and museums dioramas and the ‘natural’ habitats created for animals at zoos influences the look of my installations. An interest in scientific formula and social experimentation often drives the format of my work. I enjoy working with the live body as well as with static and moving image.
I aim to synthesize my artistic interests, instincts, and training into a single signature form; a form that integrates my passion for organization, stage management, unique characters, highly specific habitats, audience interaction, and live experience production.
