Whether employing saunas and coffees shared, a camper shell, or childhood sleeping bags as tools for artistic discourse, I am interested in what happens at the intersection of objects, gestures, and personal narratives. Through sculpture, installation, painting, media, and different forms of recreation I use physical and digital space as a means to both facilitate and frustrate communication and knowledge gathering and engage with different audiences. My goal is to develop projects that complicate object ecologies, subvert function, shift orientations, and get to a place that is oblique or more than the logic of a thing.
