My practice explores how to live beautifully alongside representational media in every day life. When you read that, you may likely think of social media apps, entertainment/news platforms, and the internet at large. But, I am also referring to the less obvious, interior media: inner monologs, identities, daydreaming, and memories. I think that there is a desperate need to find healthy ways to navigate these spaces without losing other vital parts of ourselves. I make visual and auditory artworks that engage with these topics with the hope of presenting life-affirming approaches for both understanding representational media’s impacts and reintegrating presence, embodiment, and connectedness back into our everyday.
