I distort and de-contextualize visual records to challenge ways of understanding realities too easily accepted as truth. Tearing things apart that I document, while I research and work with archives, allows me to make space for new things to happen – new ways to see and maybe understand alternate realities and perceptions.
My installations are meant to be “multi-focused” and disorienting, something understood through a logic of sensation, that also disrupt linear and singular directions of vision. After months of research, I rearrange the formal and symbolic information contained in the moving and still images I collect. When I reconfigure these "facts" through video and projections onto objects, I interweave a subjective and personal experience, imagined or re-told, that can either parallel or collide with the history and usage of the spaces captured.
