Replacing a Window and Ripping a Seam

I am interested in structures, the narrative of fairytales, the poetics of mathematics and the role that family and gender play in our society. The arrangement of these structures: how they are formed, their constraints, their visible and invisible qualities, are active investigations in my practice. My film and video work retool these frameworks to question the role of girl, woman, mother and artist.

I currently am looking at the idea of home as a construct of a planned environment and subjective history that speaks to a cycle in which we are a participant.
