I think of my art as a form visual anthropology that traverses scientific research, documentary narratives and personal journal. My work is distilled into a variety of different media, including painting, photography, video, and sculpture.
Many of my art projects develop through self-prescribed sets of actions. These actions become integrated into my life as rituals. It is a way to contemplate and quantify the world around me. For example, some recent projects involved filming the exact same location once a week for a year as a way to witness and document the transformations in the landscape caused by the Earth’s planetary movements through space. The resulting art works are artifacts of these processes.
