Advanced Fiber Studio (Highlights)
My work is gross. My environments investigate the valuation of human productivity, from exertion to excretion. I utilize actions and materials of bodily realities, which I define as inherent truths and structures that inform the experience of body ownership. This includes cleanliness, beauty standards, physical futility, and pointed distributions of labor, wealth, and worth. I also pick and scratch at societal views of bodies articulated through social spaces of body maintenance and products of bodily routine. I also navigate the concept of repulsion in my work. I fixate on the erotics of disgust, a sensory space between nauseating and sensual, occupied by the likes of excretion and mess. Wielding materials such as previously owned towels, hair, bandage, wax, and mass-produced garments, I infest spaces with labor.
