I am an artist, musician and writer who works with the form of the book to ground the temporal projects of photography, drawing, and performance art to convey specific concepts and content.
My creative work finds threads between the varied fields of the humanities. I explore time and place as elements of sequence that we build upon throughout our lives. The musicality of human existence suggests that our primary location (home) is often of a transient nature. What we call home has the ability to limit us from seeking other more promising and enduring locations where we can find overall happiness which is in the end, a temporal and psychological space.
By making work that purports its own transiency, something that can be taken anywhere at any time, art, books, and music have the ability to make us feel at home in any location because together, they convey a specific and directed view in and of our reality. Similar to good conversation, they require lapses of time so that we come away with more answers, more questions, and more hope. And like conversation, this connects us to one another.
Artistic practice and its resulting objects, songs, moments and memories evoke the wish that we try for things larger than a singular location and longer lasting than our single days.
