Lives and works in New York, United States

The focus of my work is the exploration of time and the everyday, with work ranging from textual interactive pieces to sculpture with embedded electronics to digital photography.  I am interested in capturing and re-presenting fleeting moments, both in digital/virtual interactions as well as in physical space.

The focus of my practice is to slow viewers’ sense of time by protagonizing the everyday as defined by transient space and make them aware of their own quotidianity.  It is my hope that the viewer will reflect on their own existence, and become hyper aware of the small moments from which we now quickly disconnect: the stranger passing by carrying groceries, the voicemail awaiting to be heard, commuters rushing to catch the train.

In my collaborative work, Cross Urban, I am committed to capturing the cities through which I travel and to create a dialogue with collaborator Klaus Fruchtnis as we compose our triptychs that explore language, both textual and visual.
