Physically, my works exist as sculptures, videos, performances, and paintings. My process often begins with a phase of deep research and contemplation where I gather from texts, archives, fables, and second-hand stores. I am drawn to materials with rich subtext that tell controversial or forgotten histories. The next phase of my process involves subtly manipulating or transforming the (often practical) content to reveal hidden philosophies and fatal contradictions of a post-colonial, anthropocentric society. These criticisms play out against a backdrop of personal and American history; tracing and breaking through the edges of the established past.
