Artist's Statement

Much of my work is intended as an attack on, or dissection of, “common sense” in its most literal forms. I seek structures within commonly understood myths, events and ideas, both historical and present, that point to something larger. I am particularly interested in making leaps in logic while transforming ideas that most people have settled for a surface “understanding” of.

I work across mediums simultaneously, resulting in co-existing video installations, sound pieces, performances, photography and films. I often abstract things from their original context, using them as a springboard to create projects such as: a song to transport the Bermuda Triangle to the American Midwest based on triangulating domestic airline flight paths; a piece for a string quartet based on topological models in string theory; or the reactivation of the found audiotaped sessions of a late 1970’s psychic healer.
