Artist Statement

My practice explores the modes in which bodily experiences are encoded, re-coded, archived, and disseminated. I am concerned with de-centering singular narratives and excavating alternative encounters within data and archival schemas. Through interweaving painting, film, text, computer graphics, and programming I attempt to reimagine how the digital remnants of a physical body can be mobilized beyond a final frame. If a document can function outside of an inherent context to be in a fluid state of becoming, it can in turn transform, question, and challenge.
