Street Voids (detail)

This work is comprised of the negative spaces of potholes that I have casted. Altogether, the potholes become an archive of these negative spaces in the street. Arranged as if they are artifacts from a collection, each pothole sits inside a gridded presentation. Blackened steel and reflective metal, in-lieu of clinical white plywood, reflect yet disrupt the standard institutional display strategies. Each pothole is displayed inverted or upside down from its original source. With the...

Slick With Oil

In Slick With Oil, a photograph of an iridescent oil spot on asphalt is printed on imitation silk, lightly sagging and swaying on a rebar frame. The image, created by the dripping of motor oil onto a parking space, becomes a shimmering aura on top of the wet pavement. This ephemeral moment, created by light refracting off of the toxic substance, is made permanent with the rebar structure. Colors made by the refracting oil range...

Anaesthetics

Recontetualizing the waiting room, the threshold of clinical space, this work investigates stock imagery and language that simultaneously avoids large questions of mortality and reveals a void in healthy, nuanced language for illness and death.

Anaesthetics, detail

Get-Well-Soon balloons are a way to investigate the economy of social care, colorful facades that, when recontextualized in the gallery, become eerie, detached objects. As they continue to deteriorate and fall in the space, they become live objects that evoke breathing and lung function.

Code Blue

Framing the hospital room as sacred space, this work explores fiber crafts like rug making and quilting using textiles from a clinical setting. As beds and pillows are vessels for holding the body, so are quilts, rugs, towels, gowns, socks, and sheets.

Code Blue, detail

As viewers are invited to remove their shoes, they engage in an action that is counter to many hospital practices of covering the body for protection. Viewers are invited to feel the softness of the space, making a cold space more tactile and introducing a sense of vulnerability.

Panic Management

Following the form of hospital introductory videos made by institutions to help ease the stress of entering a clinical setting, this video explores practices that attempt to avoid panic. By re-contextualizing found language and imagery, the work asks questions about the effectiveness of performing authenticity, offering comfort, and providing support in pre-recorded, rehearsed language and canned sentiment. This investigation points to a void in nuanced language for confronting feelings of uncertainty and loss.

Something That Breaks Your Skin (Fatigue)

Something That Breaks Your Skin utilizes the bodily language from a U.S. State manual on asphalt repair as both a starting point and a material. Each one of the photographic works in this series of eight focus on a particular taxonomy of road fault and the associated text from the manual. The photographs recreate example images from the manual, using faults that I found and photographed in the built landscape. Incisions in the mat reveal...
