Language at is fullest and most empty influence my current research, particularly with respect to the limitations of identity politics and their relation to being. I am interested in verb, and how through relationships and unfolding we can begin to understand the ourselves as liquid and in flux.



Surfaces and their association with energy flow form both my conceptual and material language referencing colour, texture and sound. I work with video, textile and installation often without a clear resolution in mind, locating a space between opposing ideas to expand and enter with a sense of uncertainty, the answering of one questions with yet another.
