mixed media durational exhibit

the everyday: place, space, archive.
i create durational, site-responsive interventions that involve a process of taking up residence within a place to fully engage with the location, its surroundings and every element within it. my exploration begins without parameters, allowing for the possible and impossible.
i erect monuments, construct icons, unveil relics and immortalize the vestiges of an over-stimulated existence. in this absurd contemporary moment the ordinary becomes extraordinary by bringing the unconscious to a visible, palpable form. muted, somber pillars crumble, and constructed images forcefully demand attention while creating a quiet and meditative state.
