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.
I often take a multimedia approach, using sculptural objects, musical performance, video, and interactive electronic technologies to create immersive environments. These works investigate communal aspects of music creation, and give a renewed awareness of the body to the viewer. Musical thinking, which is at the same time gestural and architectonic, often holds a strong presence in my work. I use devices such as repetition, absurdity, and collaboration to filter in the physical rhythms and movements of the body created by the accumulation of footsteps, breaths, and heartbeats. These tools work together to place the viewer in the here and now, and create spaces to “just be”.
