Artist Statement and Bio

Through photography, video, and installation I explore psychological anomalies in my physical environment and in my personal history. My work demonstrates how internalized memories and external social feedback loops create meaning and influence my experience of the world.  I replicate and expand upon unproductive cognitive processes, and impose narratives onto everyday objects to transform them into something unexpected.
