My interdisciplinary art practice is inspired by philosophical conflicts in our everyday encounters with images, objects and information. They are an exploration of personal and cultural economies of knowledge through familiar artifacts such as recipes, internet message boards, book pages. Through my work, I draw attention to how cultural material is consumed, read and re-presented in order to articulate meaning. At the foundation of my work is a scrutiny of information’s conceptual and hierarchical value.
In my teaching, I am a firm advocate for a close and slow critical examination of students' work and research. This research includes a thoughtful consideration (and interrogation) of how our subjective experience informs our world view and is implicated in a much larger historical and contemporary social context.
