My work is a study of materials and cultures and how they represent our chosen and given identities. I’m interested in analog technologies and techniques, using them as mediums to create installations and video paintings. I believe in creating new experiences, especially connected to dream-like states and alternative subcultures. My fantasy is to create spaces of opposite truths, often in whimsical humor.
