I am a collector of materials inexpensive and abundant. Repurposing elements of my surroundings, I build environments both new and universally familiar. My work explores possible or imagined narratives of spaces through site-specific themes and materials pieces with a playful approach to medium.
My work often involves use of the body through performance, participation, image or design.
