My work is primarily interested in the representational ramifications of datasets (visual and non-visual), paperwork, and photographic as well as non-photographic visualization and how each of these mediums shapes our individual experience of collective trauma.

Through sculpture, performance, and craft my work examines the way mediation affects our response to traumatic events. In my sculptural practice I perform, transfigure, and distort disembodied visual images and bureaucratic paper trails left by acute events such as the Rodney King beating and the obtuse continual dehumanization of wars abroad and within (or on) our own borders.
