New York's politics of space have long been both the real and imagined site for my works of video, installation, activism, and other performed and pedagogical acts.
My studio work incorporates ceramic and mixed media in process-oriented building of sculpture evocative of organic growth seeming to express a primal and visceral urgency and bottom up development. I then created drawings where these sculptures were projected into the urban environment. Most recently the work has taken the form of a sculptural wall of these forms on which images and text I am producing are to be projected.
