"My work examines the influence of agricultural and pharmaceutical corporations on our food supply, and consider the connection between corporate interests and public health. Using appropriation, distortion, and redaction I explore the complex relationship between economy and ecology. I have recently broadened my interest into the area of facial recognition technology and its impact on individual privacy and psychological health.
I am engaged in the intersection of art and science and the potential for art to bring new perspectives to contemporary scientific issues. With drawing as my primary medium, I use gouache, graphite, ink, and collage to create hybridized versions of seemingly familiar yet peculiar scenarios. I also have worked with text-based embroidery, site-responsive installations, and manipulated audio loops. Using reference materials such as vintage medical books, 20th century agricultural magazines, USDA promotional videos, and mid-century chemical company print advertisements, I strive to create elegant environments within the context of disturbing genetic realities."
