Artist Statement - “How does the technological evolution and current global challenges affect our emotional and sensory connection to each other and… our space in time?”
“Are we being de-socialized or re-socialized?” “What are the effects of this?”
“Can meaning and connection be deconstructed and reconstructed using new media?”
Everything from neuroscience to pop culture to politics and everything in between informs my process. I utilize research and media that best informs my creative inquiry. My work involves creating with connection and disconnection utilizing multi media, including paint, video, video installation, and collaborative, cross-discipline work in the sciences.
