There is a powerful capacity to communicate through process. By accepting this symbollic form of communication, I remain open to possibility and flexible to the unforeseen. It is within this realm of giving up control, letting go, embracing spontaneity--that my work is nurtured. Sparked by my intrigue into the properties of materials and the preciousness of action, I am attempting to abandon traditional methods, seeking for new ways to engage process and object. I challenge the perceived boundaries of the material and the presumed nature of things, relying on metaphor and the properties of interaction, to celebrate the state of fragility, impermanence, and action.

I also am the co-founder and member in artist collaborative Apophenia Underground with Jeff Gibbons. Through curatorial projects, traveling, writing, documenting, digital media, mixed media, and everyday life, we make work.
