Artist Statement

 

My work involves intervening with natural and cultural forces to explore ideas of power, control and human agency. Through the use of homemade props and low-tech devices, I engage directly with these forces as a performer, or by passively allowing my constructions to function on their own. Although my performances often involve struggle, and the devices appear to work effortlessly, in both systems chance and inevitability become dominant factors. In each case, my work documents a subtle transformation, a collaboration between forces that are usually unseen or unconsidered and my agency as an artist.
