"I employ humor, an openness towards the banal, and an understanding that nothing is neutral, to hypothesize alternate ways of moving through time and space. These hypotheses frequently take the form of sculpture, imagery, and the organization of collective experiences to reframe and reveal alternatives to existing hierarchies of value."
