Through my work I explore the rules of public, private and personal spaces for physical structure and human interaction. In making artwork, I create a humorous, uncanny intimacy through improperly juxtaposing objects and environments, subverting their usual purposes. I make sculpture using sewing, ceramics, food, bathroom facilities and more, and I use photography and video to document performative interactions with the objects and environments I create.
I am interested in creating these strange objects and environments because I think that humans innately search for a sense of belonging and comfort in the environments they exist in and with the objects they interact with. My work asks the viewer “What does it mean to belong and to feel comfort?” and provides humorous, yet unrealistic, solutions to possibly finding these attributes.
I am currently a student at The University of Texas at Austin pursuing a BFA in Studio Art with an emphasis in sculpture, photography and printmaking.
