I am an interdisciplinary artist with a background in sound and experimental performance. I am particularly interested in the fantastical uncanny and "pareidolic glitch"—how perceptual mistakes permeate every layer of our being. Early in my life, I was deeply inspired by surrealists such as Dorothea Tanning and Max Ernst. Later, I discovered that similar surrealism could be achieved with sound after hearing the mechanically organic designs of Aphex Twin. With the help of artists like Pauline Oliveros, I learned that experiences could be painted by means other than just visual.
Much of my work focuses on communal and socially shared perceptions, using a surrealism-inspired phenomenological framework for examining the ways we communicate with each other. My primary medium is computer-generated sound and video, which are created with programming environments such as Max/MSP, Processing, and Supercollider. By coupling this practice with sculpture, painting, and performance, I seek to provide a holistic, engaging experience to inspire thoughtful civility.
