PROJECTS

My practice investigates the experience of assimilation. Meditating the fluidity of self, and perceptions of other, I explore pathways for the release of tension caused by the histories and abuses of power. How do families, institutions and systems of representation reflect the processes of individual subjectivity? What conjuring shapes me into you, and them? The work represents a psychic journey where doubt and compassion are navigated, and experience transformed.
