Sound and visual stimuli constantly combine in a heap of information that overlap, support, and contradict all at the same time. Working in several disciplines, I like to consider this phenomenon while making art by re-arranging facts, information, and imagery to tell a new story. The character is invented; the costume and background are created to further distance any reference to a real person or real location. The dialogue often touches on universal themes that make reference to sex, race, gender, or just plain old everyday life experience, examining personal and social mayhem while relying on sometimes inappropriate, but real life language.
