About The Artwork

This Too Will Stop is one sculpture made as part of a series of mechanical, moving, sound-producing sculptures. The series is titled "Blocks". The sculptures made in Blocks reflect on the ideas of authorship and ownership, in relation to the house, a space, or an object. Each sculpture operates in a repeating motion. Motor(s) and components are buried inside of the composited materials, and other motion elements are left exposed to see and/or hear. All the forms are molded in a geometric way to emphasize a block of space, or an extracted chunk of a place, with a repetitive time signature. I was interested in the consequences of this relation: what it means if something becomes a temporal space, object, or house--a house that always belongs to someone else. I was questioning commodity, power structures, and histories of ownership and authorship. I had aimed to transform the idea of property into something else that portrays uselessness. This is sculpture is electronic and it moves. View documentation on Vimeo here:

I am a visual artist living and working between New York City and artist residencies. My work uses various media, referencing concepts and concerns over my own interpretations of the world. This can take the form of a dreamlike or simulated version of experiences, or a replay of something seen or heard. I’m influenced by places, instances, and the way we think about information as we receive it through both traditional and alternative methods. I find today's discourse violent and destructive and I am frightened by how that discourse conditions our perceptions. The subjects I incorporate into visual artworks get at this in roundabout ways. These can be objects or images that come off as noisy, repetitive, or unsettling. They can also be dark, weird, and problematic. I do enjoy referencing problems and behavior, and our relationship to technology. Specifically what the digital does to the physical, and the interplay between these two realities. Professor of Media Studies and Digital Arts. Exhibition venues include The Painting Center, The Austrian Cultural Forum, The Invisible Dog Art Center, Portal: Governor’s Island, and Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center.
