Artist's Statement

Coming from an interdisciplinary background, I continue to be intrigued by domains that are apparently in discord. What was an interest in entomology, music and engineering has turned into a fascination with science (chemistry in particular), literary sources and music/ sound. I realize these interests through installations. This methodology grants me the freedom to work across mediums and creates a space that serves to elucidate and transform the stagnant dichotomy of the clinical versus the poetic, in order to show the subtle nuances and similarities at work within both.
