As an interdisciplinary artist I use the artistic process to explore the ways in which generalizations are prioritized as ways of knowing about the world. Specifically, I am intrigued by our persistent tendencies to make assumptions about each other’s life situations. My work aims to create spaces, objects and ideas that reject this phenomenon. Looking at ways of being that appear far from my own is integral to my research. And yet, in witnessing firsthand the societal disparities of wealth, education and health while working in the field of mental-health care, I have developed a heightened awareness of how one can never know what is informing another’s way of perceiving and being in the world. As a consequence, I have developed a strengthening hesitation to attempt to tell others' stories. Therefore, my artistic process tends to involve modes which direct my work toward social practice (ex. collaboration and public skill-share interventions), where I can look at how others’ perspectives can help to evolve my own understandings.
