Every object is another thing’s ghost.
In my hybrid practice, I make installations, objects, performances, and writings that transform everyday images and materials to create a sense of foreignness or of being a foreigner in one’s own country. In general, my work is driven by a fascination with narrative and stories, and in particular what happens when the things we think we know so well—language, our bodies, etc—break down and what is released in those moments. I am particularly interested the blending of fiction and reality in our lives and how easily we get lost in between. What is of great interest to me is the point at which a thing is both itself and becoming something else—the object/ and image wedged between itself and its ghosts. I am interested in hybridization as a social, psychological, and political tool. The process of reimagining what is understood to be concrete, static, or truthful brings me great joy.
