In my art practice I use photography, text, archives and objects to create projects that emphasize dialogue and collaboration. My work primarily originates from a deep sense of curiosity and asking a core set of questions, while inviting people to participate inside of the conceptual project structure that develops.
Collaboration, site specificity, interdisciplinary practices, use value and ethics are all core concepts that emerge and are continually revisited over the duration of the long-term project structure I utilize. While comfortable working within normative art exhibition spaces, my work often takes place in grocery stores, the streets, vacant storefronts and other non-traditional spaces.
