I use my body to reveal and contemplate slivers of my identity and experience, referenced in objects, actions, and garments I make. Time becomes my partner and adversary as I chase visible change through fragile materials, borrowing methods of working from my background in ceramics practice. I rely on sound, photography, and video to record these processes, documentation that becomes itself an investigation of the relationship between decay and preservation. Documents become remnants and memories of lost actions, choreographed into sculptural installations as layered ephemera.
What paradoxes, disruptions, and reversals are alive in processes of active decline? What is the relationship between deterioration and preservation? What is the role of transformation in dying processes? Through materials and actions, I welcome complex, layered experience in a world of dichotomies. I investigate the fragile, ripe, mysterious space between decline and evolution.
