My practice combines social interaction, performance, sculpture and writing to explore expectation and how social-constructions can create barriers. I often create fictitious characters that explore such social constructs and the relationships between the body and environments to critique our place in society.
I like to keep my audience in a juxtaposed state of discomfort and ease. My work is experimental, interested in femininity, gender perceptions, science fiction, time and the body.
