Self-Portrait

This is my own self-portrait submitted to graduate school in 2010

 

 

At the core of my work, I am a mixed media artist. I graduated with a BFA from Tufts University and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2007 where I studied various mediums alongside academic theory. Due to this experience I am comfortable working with most materials and have the ability to learn quickly through play.

Dwelling on Intimacy

An interactive mixed media installation.  Utilizing theory from performance art and sociology to construct an engaging interactive video using MAXmsp. This installation documented everyone who entered the space, stored the footage and remixed the footage using an algorithm. The end image was an exquisite corpse randomly collaged together.  This project was a meditation on technology and the effect on intimacy. 

 

 InterMate

As communication technology develops and the physical distance between us is able to grow–our cognitive intimacy capabilities are explored. A telephone for instance, an antiquity in the technological age, is just one instance of how we are connected mentally, but bodily disconnected. With the advancement of such a tool, to where we have the Internet, web-cams, Skype and mobile phones to name a few, we can connect whenever with out the body present. How has and will our society adapt to these recent developments in communication technology.  And what new devices will emerge. How are the relationships and connections in our immediate life affected by the changing technology?

               

River Ways

River ways move under the land, and connect seemingly unconnected landscapes. While visiting Colorado in 2006, I was shown a reservoir created by collecting water from the Colorado River a decade prior. This reservoir had a significant impact on the water level of the Colorado River, which winds its way to California. This reservoir was responsible for the California water shortages of the mid-90s. When the Colorado and California connection was made clear to me, it inspired the idea of how much the whole world is connected.  I have always been interested in the way that people are connected, and ways in which we can unite, unfortunately resources have been the main reason for war. The River way series takes interest in the current political situation of globalization and the responsibility of cultures to understand our connection.
