STATEMENT OF WORK

My work explores how mass-produced, bulk items can be used to create immersive, transformative environments that trade consumer experiences for spiritual ones. Through projects such as Igloo, plastic storage containers are reinterpreted into blocks of snow. In Office Supply Cubicle, notebooks and binders are re-displayed to reference stained glass windows. In Going For A Swim in Blue, 2000 blue, white, and clear balloons are placed in a closed space, transforming the environment into an experience of color, air, and mass. These projects challenge the banality of consumption to be more than what it is.
