Multi-disciplinary artist working in video, performance, installation, sound, and sculpture
I am a socially engaged interdisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, and installation. I try to make compelling and safe situations and environments inviting deep introspection from viewers and participants. Much of my work is an exploration of difficult and uncomfortable aspects of being human: dying and forgiveness. I'm interested in pushing societal norms around dying and the lack of conversation about the inevitable.
Much of my practice is collaborative and projects like live performance Torcher Chamber Arkestra combine fire, music, sound, and electronics. Projects such as Forgiveness, are interactive and often collaborate with supported groups, in situations with imbedded duty of care.
I often use glass for its sonic, encapsulating, and transparent qualities. I try to make work that is emotionally and spiritually useful.
