My work is a response to a sense of crisis in the world. It casts the individual amidst the collective, wrestling with the overwhelming social, political, and environmental concerns of late capitalism. I engage with these concerns alternately by conflating one with another, speaking from the past or future in order to address the present, and playing with strangeness and absurdity amidst melancholy and grief. I move between self-created and existing materials, hoping to provoke an encounter with the experience of unshielded – and often ungrounded – contemporary awareness through image, sound, and text.
