I court failure. Whether a record or an instrument of changing state, I want to see what happens at the boundary of materials and methods - pushing a work to crack, leak, feedback, weep, decompose, break, sag, drain or otherwise transgress the notion of finish. The fissures of permanence are proof of the real.

My recent work examines how art and educational institutions perpetuate racial injustice. Certainly, this is in part the product of my attention to current events in and beyond the U.S., and my reflections on how the same spaces that welcomed me and inspired my creativity also actively and passively alienate, discourage—even dehumanize—many others.
