The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
In my practice I work across media including sound, video, sculpture and collage, delving into alternative relationships between sound, image and audience. My work investigates the myriad representations of nature and ecology and their relationship to the built environment, while dealing with the aesthetic and ideological remnants of Modernism. I am fascinated by “citified nature”, and on the other hand look closely at extinct species and the cultural products they leave behind them, making connections between natural and technological extinction as a way to generate form and image.
Working with obsolete technologies such as the phonautograph, reel-to-reel tape and renaissance instruments, my oeuvre also includes performative events and actions that use my sound installations as a readymade environment to layer live compositions, together with professional and amateur musicians, as well as communities outside the art world. These hybrid events employ chance and collage strategies via sound, classical, and experimental music as they occupy the exhibition space.
