Statement

In my practice I take the position of the observer in order to provoke discussions about social relations. My work proposes the surfaces of the world as a social skin, and that scrutinizing and (re-) presenting it allows for the possibility to re-imagine and adjust conditions we think of as immutable, permanent.

 

I use varied strategies—photography, video, contextual installation -- to engage with the codes embedded in our social fabric. Art is a superlative environment for listening, for empathy: a porous, interactive surface through which (perhaps) we can (begin to) recognize, and even address, each other’s pain.
