My practice is diverse in form, but is united by a focus on the structure and language of human interdependency.
Simply: How do we come to understand the experience of another person? How do we come to form our [many] selves through our relationships with others? What are the limits of empathy?
I create physical, linguistic and psychological collisions where individual or group identities might shift, bloat or dissipate.
