What I do
I create sculptures that push against the categories of human and body to reflect an expanded corporeal experience in a posthuman world.

Through additive and subtractive processes, the body forms itself in response to physical forces such as gravity, energy and entropy as well as societal forces such as social media, the wellness industry, and urban development. My work responds to the distinctly posthuman experience of trying to comprehend the multiplicity of ways in which one’s body is being shaped by the world. I use sculpture to push against the categories of “human” and “body” and create an expanded view of corporeal experience in a posthuman world.
