My work focuses on the relations between image, space, and subjectivity; on the everyday, embodied experience of meaning-making as situated within the context of technological and global pressures. Through processes of recording, representing, and rearranging, these site-responsive projects perform a kind of sounding out, intensifying the experience of presence and place as an entanglement between materiality and virtuality, location and dislocation. This approach reflects an emphasis on the in-between, working on the threshold between art and vernacular contexts.
