I observe the repercussion of human contact through our daily interactions and interruptions.
While my work often manifests in installation and performance, I sketch in glass, a material that holds record of process.
It is in that memory that I am most interested.
I relate it to human growth and experience over a lifetime.
My work attempts to exaggerate that nuanced change, to put the body or mind in enough distress that those minute transformations become magnified and allow for reflection.
