I study processes of physical, technical, and spiritual transformation and combine analog and digital projection techniques with performance, installation, video, painting, printmaking, and photography. I want to show the beauty and fragility of life and at the same time give positive space to contents which might not be... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Most people are already aware of the negative effects marine debris has on animals and ecosystems. It’s easy to feel depressed when faced with plastic pollution statistics and easier still to feel disheartened when you realize how our daily consumption habits perpetuate resource wars and needless suffering around the planet. I don't, however, put our trash on display to remind viewers of how dire our situation is (though I do...

How does the United States acknowledge... [more]

.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? For me, it’s important to follow trends, but I am also abhorred by their distortion. We live in the time of sterile aesthetics, uniform beauty, plastic surgeries, computers, high tech, and countless other options to modify our bodies. Through photographs, I overstate all those available possibilities for corporal transformation. We long for change from the outside, unaware how much our emotional states disturb our physical bodies.... [more]
