Artist Statement

I make art to ask questions. I am committed to a protean practice that utilizes the methodologies and media that most effectively exercise aesthetic persuasion, criticality, and urgent communication. Essential to my practice is the role of sensory modes of perception in the generation of knowledge. My installations, videos, and interventions are intended as sensorial experiences that prod the perceptual and ideological assumptions of the audience. How does the interrelation of image, embodiment and coded space probe cultural practice and, by extension, the human condition? I experiment with materiality and with immaterial, non-visual elements like sound and scent within specific contexts in order to prompt social inquiry and interrupt habits of viewing. Within my visual art practice, the act of looking is interrogated.
