instances of collapse 

I investigate specific instances of collapse (or compression) that occur within forms, bodies, and ideas. The collapse that I examine lacks a fixed name, but is a kind of movement that collects and amasses, or condenses without limiting its form. I see this movement as positive—one that dissolves boundaries, favors the indefinite over the definite, and is as a result all-inclusive. My interest in characterizing this leads me to use many different forms of communication—painting, writing, drawing, and performance are all essential parts of my practice. To me, these methods are different approaches of describing something that by nature resides in indeterminacy, and therefore cannot be defined directly. I work serially and fragmentarily, methodically researching and revolving around loosely connected sources.
