Statement

As an artist, musician, and performer my work is concerned with the theme of the possibilities of social engagement. Drawing on my early work in photography, my practice seeks to examine and assert the notion that art is never passive or static, but a constellation of systems and processes that determine, affirm, and condition our experiences. On account of this, my work is always political and is concerned as much with process as it is with product. Employing common everyday objects as mediums such as glue, balloons, ice; simple performative gestures such as breathing onto glass, burning paper; musical performances that are centered around non-hierarchical ways of sonic experience such as Fluxus instructional scores and music designed for non-musicians, my work explores the limits and gains of the simple gesture. Within this investigation, I am interested in illuminating the potentials in the overlooked, a strategy that, on a larger scale, speaks to the historical position of which the marginalized is often placed.
