Working across mediums, and often drawing upon scientific research, I use the Earth as both material and subject for storytelling. I make objects and installations that incorporate time-based processes and transformative materials – like cyanotype, ice, and clay – tapping into their aesthetic qualities as well as their utility. Artworks become proxies to document the passage of time, personal experience, and human interaction with our environment.
I am interested in ways to bring the vastness of geologic time to an intimate human scale, and how to make space for vulnerability and empathy within that juxtaposition; I write love letters to glaciers, create and tend to systems of melt and erosion, trace my body along fault lines. Whether performed socially or in solitude, each gesture is an exercise in sincerity, hope, and (sometimes) futility – an attempt to reimagine the flow of the future.
