The convergence of urbanism and landscape is the foundation of my work; through the use of
photography-based research, I address the ideas of absence, romanticism, representation, and
authenticity of experience.
I cultivate work from a spiritual realm, employing physical materials...fragile materials, attaching my
inhibitions, contradictions and conflicts to each medium. Every medium chosen, helps the task of
telling my anecdote of "survival".
I am a steward of objects. I explore the ways in which objects enter and exit our lives. How we care
for them, how we think about them, how we occupy them, and how they occupy us are questions
central to my interests.
I create compositions in time with computer programs and electronics, build immersive environments that are activated by projected and natural light, and intervene on materials that erode, drip, melt, evaporate, break apart, or float away.
