DRAWING • VR • VIDEO • AR

STATEMENT

I interpret the human body as a complicated abstraction engaged in a perpetual struggle.

In mediums including drawing, video, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and original sound, I attempt to isolate moments of exertion, violence and stillness—often all at once. The unease of these moments is integral to my own experience and, I imagine, to the experience of others as well. Both on paper and in virtual space, my process is deeply physical. It is my hope that this energy is communicated through the work.

My move to digital drawing in three dimensions was a natural extension of what began (and continues) on paper. It allows for an empathic and immersive expansion of my ideas as well as the ability to introduce the most ancient form of mark making into an uncharted technological arena. This juxtaposition of analog and digital technology in a shared space underscores the idea of tension within one body; and of the inevitable shape shifting this conflict provokes both formally and emotionally.

Through this work I aim to create an experience of wonder and self-reflection as participants consider the engagement of bodies (their own and the bodies of others) in an ongoing, unsettled contest.
