I create visual narratives that permeate the unconscious in ways that are both familiar and estranged. These stories come to life through photography, video, performance, and sculpture.
As a child I spent countless hours exploring the outdoors of Western Canada. Those early experiences continue to inform my research and thematic interests. I am endlessly fascinated by the liminal space found at the convergence of humanity, the environment, and ethics, especially in the context of late capitalism.
Currently I am looking at how the act of “rewilding” might serve to sustain us in the Los Angeles of the future. Drawing upon knowledge passed on by the areas first people’s, the Gabrielano and Tongva, I am cataloging ideas and building objects. These rudimentary sculptural objects utilize the native environment to address basic needs of survival, including shelter and tools.
