My performances and activated objects are self-portraiture drawing from experiences of awkwardness, grief, and loss. Absurdly, absurdity becomes a way to survive, a way to cope, and a way to understand the human condition. It’s not hard to find levity in misery. There’s a certain humor in trying to keep people and things from falling apart. These lived experiences inform my performance and video work, manifesting as futile attempts to control the uncontrollable.
