I make installations that take over architectural interiors using hand-cut adhesive vinyl, mural painting, large-scale drawing interventions, and wallpapering. Fascinated with the micro vs. macro qualities of space and its variations as we move through these magnitudes, I create immersive environments. My recent research explores geometry, mathematics and physics, to understand space as a platform for the intersection between art, technology, and science in my practice.
My approach to the production of these installations lies on the following questions: Why can we find underlying patterns between natural microstructures and artificial mega-structures? Why are natural and artificial forms so similar? Can we advocate for the real and the virtual to be equivalent? I explore these questions by using the installation as an analogy between traditional media and the digital image. My pieces appear to be digitally made yet they are entirely planed, drawn, cut, and produced by hand.
I joined Groundswell in 2014 where I have been given the opportunity to bring these large endeavors into the realm of communities and social awareness in NYC. Along with students and school partnerships, we actively use art to convey the youth's messages in the same way that I do with my installation. I work with Groundswell as an enabler, and as a conduit for these messages to be communicated in a clear and just way.
