My work investigates themes of personal history and its relationship to shared understanding. Since a recent research pilgrimage to the site of the first atomic bomb detonation it is clear to me we are now building our own destruction through a desire for power. My work is primarily focused on the idea that human life is a product of nature, and nature is now harming itself in irreversible ways. I make sculptures, videos, and installations that utilize still projected images, moving images, sound, objects, and animals. While balancing humor with seriousness, through my materials and their manipulation, I speak about points of tension, deception, conflict, and aggression.
