I have been thinking a lot about the idea of interpenetration and how observation can be a tool to loosen the boundaries separating myself from other people and my environment. I know that I am changed not only but what I see and how I see, but I am becoming more curious about the relationship that develops – that it isn’t just about me seeing and being changed – but a process that implicates both observer and observed.

My materials are objects that I encounter in my everyday, such as cups, bowls or those that border on invisibility such as clear acetate, water and steam. Activities such as walking and breathing are also incorporated as both method and material. My tools are wide-ranging and are often a hybrid of photography, video, installation and sculpture. Lens-based tools provide a method of both documentation and engagement.

With a spirit of inquiry I engage with an everyday phenomenology that privileges finding over making. The object is always present and co-exists with its transformed state. It simultaneously hovers between how we normally view the world and a different potentiality. I am especially interested in how this transformation can be enacted with a simple playful gesture on my part. By taking ever present processes such as shadows, light, breath and framing them in an unexpected manner I offer up an alternate perspective for interacting with our day-to-day existence.
