By deploying lightweight, synthetic materials in site-responsive installations and constructed drawings, I foreground internal conceptual and formal dualities: substance and immateriality, cohesion and fragmentation, object and image, banality and bling. Through cutting, layering, tearing, stapling, and stretching plastic garbage bags, Mylar, optical plastics, and mosquito netting, I assemble experiences of visual ambiguity.

My aim is to choreograph events of perceptual incident. My hope is that this conflation of disparate parts — mark, shadow, geometry, gesture, concord, dissonance — results in some sort of vertiginous whole.

My interest in film and fiction informs the work.
