Artist Statement

I am interested in the participants relationship with production and outcome. Through site specific work, interventions and workshops I explore this interest in variety of materials including whiteboards and paper that allow the outcome to reveal new insights or ideas in the form of drawings, sculptures, objects, data and experiences. These outcomes become a way to document a mode of production (participants activities) or use participants mental and physical labour into a ending result. My role within this process varies depending on the project, acting as a facilitator, observer or active participant. I operate in this manner as it allows me to explore curiosity through a trans-disciplinary lens rather than fixing my practice to a specific medium or discipline.
