“My practice revolves around the fabrication of dysfunctional and disobedient objects that embody a real-yet-simultaneously-imagined fictional paradox. I seek to stage locations of oxymoronic tone and intent, of incidents that leave a sense of time and play behind. Fragments of myth, architecture, and the every-day are inherently present in my work and aim to suspend the viewer in claustrophobic distant anemoia. Often inviting audience participation, my work is sculptural when static and performative when active.”
