engage in a dialogue with a community

My art practice and its results develop a reciprocal exchange with the world. As an artist or a neighbor, I look to engage in a dialogue with a community and to understand my role in it. I create human connections and communication, generating opportunities for myself, participants, and viewers to gain new awareness of our everyday surroundings and people. Approaching interaction from the perspective of an art practice lends me a critical gaze. My posture in the world is that of an artist looking at her works, but also as a person considering social constraints. My projects bind the chaos of my everyday interactions and allow me to value them both socially and ontologically.
