Statement

Through place-based historical investigations, I create darkly humorous cultural artifacts reflecting on contemporary infrastructures and how dislocation and wreckage are embedded within modern political geographies. Working in new- and interdisciplinary media, I highlight the links between design and violence within overlapping spaces of luxury and crime. Horror scenes, jewelry displays, and architectural rubble become stage sets for icons of fragmentation, presenting dystopian iterations of modern Ornamentalism.
