My work raises questions about technology, materiality, interaction, collection, and migration. I use light, glass, concrete, steel, plastics, and other mass-produced objects. I work across scale and spectrum, multiple to site-specific, using scale to make the BIG small, and the small BIG. I connect an object’s history with its interpreted use and negative value. Some current interests driving my post-studio, public, film, and installation practice include: Archiving of historical ephemera, social media, game narratives, disaporas, subcultures, critical nostlagia, flocking behaviour, dialogues, the writing of David Graeber, and the thermodynamic dialogues of biological systems. I believe in and have helped build communities of artist-controlled space.
