As an interdisciplinary and collaborative artist, I investigate the animate nature of my surroundings:
spaces and objects that teem with labor, history and potential to change and move. My work is often
site dependent, and pieces live on and change. I build over, animate, and rearrange spaces to create
otherworldly environments with sculpture, moving image, or sound. Gaining intimacy with site and
material through historical research, handcrafts, collaboration, and repetitive acts of working, I explore
being a maker and the importance of making itself.
