My artwork is an ongoing investigation into the nature of perception. I’m fascinated by the fundamental act of seeing: the raw underlying experience of understanding the world through visual sensation, memory, and active observation.
Trained as both an architect and artist, I have been deeply influenced by the relationship of our bodies to the built environment, and have focused my current work on the mechanism of seeing itself. I question how we can navigate and make sense of the physical world, and how language, social constructs, and visual signs all play a role in how we perceive our surroundings.
Working with minimalist sculpture, digital photography, and video, I strive to bring an awareness and focus to the presence of seemingly ordinary things around us. Ultimately, I am attempting to capture the essence of perception — the singular moment in space and time when the world appears new, unfamiliar, and sublime.
