MFA Visual Arts Columbia University, 2018


Taking everyday architecture and features of the spaces I inhabit as a starting point, I use photography and sculpture to explore links between physical, embodied space and its representation. In my recent projects I have been using disregarded photographic materials trying to expand their possibilities, accepting and provoking accidental results.
