I am a multidisciplinary artist working with photography, video, and sculpture. I am interested in the relationships formed by complex systems, my research focuses on the history and practice of Nature.
For several years I have been working on a world-building project, Cosmogenesis. Set in the near future, Cosmogenesis is told through the perspective of an archivist making her way through the ephemera of legendary twenty-first century trans-dimensional travel cults. Each object in the archive is part of a coded system that reveals secret methods of travel through parallel universes. The archive is comprised of photographs, videos, sculptures, found objects, and ephemera.
