Artist Bio
Working in installation, photography, and works on paper my work explores how images can be re-contextualized. I consider homes and domestic spaces to be sites that are integral to shaping subjectivity. Working from an archive of slides, I create immersive tableaux that critique nostalgia. Drawing from theater, cinema and literature, I create dramatic and disorienting settings that house projected slides.

I work to create a psychological backdrop where narratives and identity are continuously re-interpreted.
