Statement

I create installations incorporating sculptural elements, live performances, costumes, sound pieces, and theatrical lighting. I work with themes about the fragility of the body and the frailty of life. This committed exploration on these topics often makes me very apprehensive, but is the core and strength of my creative process.

While creating and performing, I explore my anxieties about mortality and the universal experience of living precariously in a body made of flesh and bone. I am fearful of trauma and distress in the body and therefore often find myself deconstructing and investigating the human anatomy.

Last, it is my intention to create a stimulating forum wherein viewers may freely explore their feelings about mortality, loss, and their relationship to their bodies. My goal is not to appease and comfort, but rather to agitate and illuminate places that are usually left unexplored.
