I am interested in the use of apparently disparate materials, subjects and forms in a way that raises questions about the place of people in a society that values order, innovation and technology. I use methods of mass production and marketing to create artwork that values individuality over homogenization and complexity over efficiency, co-opting practical digital technology for the purposes of physical beauty.
The DIY Reliquary series plays with the sense of worldly magic surrounding the Catholic relic and the efficiency of the digital world. They are computer generated cut-and-fold housings for little bits of the body: hair, fingernails, and cast-off bits of clothing from the people around me. I am interested creating ways innovation can work in our favor, and exploring the ways that contemporary technology can be used to improve the human condition by addressing the body, the spirit, and cultural history.
