I am interested in exploring the space between-the ambiguities of interacting, connecting and communicating. I pull inspiration from daily life and am interested in our collective sociality-the space where "I" ends and "other" begins. I attempt to shift the notion of "I" as individual to a relational "I"-viable through relationships with others. Consequently emphasis is placed on understanding multiple subjectivities and practicing reciprocity. The desire to overhaul alienation and complacency through consciousness and civic engagement is a central theme in my work.
