I am deeply influenced by experiences I have had as a physical and spiritual body. Recently, I am thinking about vibrating bodies and the idea that matter is not solid but is, in fact, moving, permeable and changeable. I am excited by the idea that things in the physical world can come in and out of being separate from each other. The possibility that art can undo things and open up space for new experiences of one’s body and of the material world is currently driving my practice. I want to create experiences where differences between things become undone, where I see myself in things that are different from me. And where things, too, see themselves in each other. The idea that art has the ability to recreate the world in new ways leads me to a deeply felt belief that all art is fundamentally political. Art has the potential to change how we relate to each other, our communities and our planet. Relationships (my relationships with people and relationships with and between things) are central to what I do and how I understand art to exist in the world. For me, all acts of making are inherently collaborative. Whether I am collaborating with a material, a tree or another artists, I am never working alone. I am always listening. I am constantly finding new materials to work with and different ways of making. I get excited by what happens when very different strategies are juxtaposed to manifest or investigate the same questions; like different dialects communicating with each other in the same language.
