I use both traditional and new media, as well as performative elements, to create works that explore the creation and processes involved in artistic production. In recent years, my artistic practice has consisted primarily of performance and video work as I investigate communication systems and the effect of technology on social structures and communities. By examining the relationships between artist, viewer, and artwork, I explore how we communicate, how we perceive one another, and why we adopt and play out certain roles within our societies. Participatory action and interactivity are also present in my work as I construct environments where communicative and social encounters between the public and the artist/artwork can take place.
