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 challenge 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 mental-health care in Vancouver and Montreal and then living in the New York metropolitan area, 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 in my work. Instead my artistic process tends to involve modes which direct my work toward a social art practice where I invite people to represent parts of their personal journey in social settings while exploring the ways in which others’ perspectives can help to evolve my own understandings. For me this approach asserts that the process of forming is as important as the formed.
