My work investigates how concepts of self are affected by crisis and memories of specific events. Obstacles become launching points. Recycling perceived memories through the mature perspective of the present assist in the development of allostasis, or the balancing and stabilizing of basic physiological life functions during changing environmental and developmental contexts. My goal is to gain an understanding of the self and to use art as a means for communicating with levels of my unconscious in an intense experiment of self-discovery.
