Rooted in a fascination with ritual and theatricality, I work to construct environments that explore how one measures the individual self within the mystery of existence. This search manifests in layered translations which refer back to familiar forms, leading to a closer examination of the human narrative as a quest for meaningful survival. Through a diverse range of material and personal poetics, I aim to articulate the tension, history, and expressive potential contained within attitudes of being.
