Why?

My work takes an architectural or environmental form, and encourages the body and perceptive senses of the viewer to explore and play. I want to engage the viewer in a consciousness of their own sensory attention, and how the world can be explored using this attention. Additionally, through the emotive and destabilizing presence of recorded sound, I create liminal spaces which open voids of familiarity that beg the mind to fill them.

I focus my art on perceptual modes and on play because these are accessible tools. Using them in strange environments strengthens them. I have found this useful in my own life for growing love, kindness, and gratitude. Play and bodily awareness are important to inculcate these ideas which are necessary for living an aware and connected life.
