Building 7  Floor 2  Studio 5

Sensitive to the increasing power that digital, virtual, and augmented realities command, I create site-specific installations grounded in real space, analog material, and the human body. My paintings and paperworks have tactile and built-up surfaces, countering the way screens flatten the texture of our world. While my imagery is abstract, I reference specific technological structures that have come to condition how and what we see, including framing devices, windows, “the cloud,” scrolling, pixilation, and tiles the size of laptops and phones. As I install my works in real space, the changing conditions of light, airflow, sound, and human movement activate them further. It is in this dynamic interplay between my own embodied making process, the site’s conditions, and the viewers’ physical encounter with them, that my work breathes.
