Statement

My practice is predicated upon the investigation of social anthropology, individual and collective histories, through sight specific analysis.  I seek out places and sites whose histories haunt and interrupt the present.  

I choose sites that silence.

My work is a series of minimal, often incomplete narratives: like torn pages of a story I attempt to reassemble an experience lived out of order. Anachronisms isolate themselves, still time, and demand pause.  They hold us.

In this stagnancy, untold histories recount themselves, in all their brevity, satire, beauty, and collapse. Reflection in stilled scenes.
