RISD (Rhode Island School of Design)
Through my work I strive to articulate overlapping systems, hierarchical structures, and the polarity of power dynamics. I am always searching to understand the movement of power by tracing the violence that occurs when power structures collide. I draw inspiration from sources such as geopolitics, history, pop culture, ecology, and parapsychology. I often overlap different methodologies from multiple disciplines until new perspectives emerge, so that I can construct visual poetries to reveal and examine the systematic violence of our time.
