Artist Statement

My work consists of constant self-maintenance. In my research and practice, I analyze the construction and upkeep of my identity, questioning my choices and values in order to learn new, novel information about my life and its effect on those around it. I reduce formative elements of my life to their logical components and reconstruct them in a condensed temporal space in the form of a sculpture or performance. Objectifying and scrutinizing my own logic allows for a shift in perspective, a different vantage point from which to process and evaluate my identity.
