Artist's Statement

My thesis work investigates the borderlands between material space(time) and electronic space(time). What spaces — real or virtual — are we in, and how do ways of image-making inform our concepts of them? My work exists in both electronic and physical space, pointing to the existence of a larger space(time) manifold encompassing both. Using light reflection and refraction, ferrofluid, water, lasers, and glass, I develop experimental video and animation techniques in order to expand into new ways of seeing.
