Full Artist's statement
I often take a multimedia approach, using sculptural objects, musical performance, video, and interactive electronic technologies to create immersive environments. These works investigate communal aspects of music creation, and give a renewed awareness of the body to the viewer. Musical thinking, which is at the same time gestural and architectonic, often holds a strong presence in my work. I use devices such as repetition, absurdity, and collaboration to filter in the physical rhythms and movements of the body created by the accumulation of footsteps, breaths, and heartbeats. These tools work together to place the viewer in the here and now, and create spaces to “just be”.
