“My practice expands the field of visual art in relation to the environment. This leads to innovative projects in drawing, film, sculpture and architecture. The artworks resonate with complex systems of making and expand how things work and fit together on multiple platforms, form the prosaic of material and structure to the cultural, poetic and uncanny.”
