We have witnessed dramatic changes during the rise of the information age and the shifts it has brought to the home, workplace and interactions we have with each other. The paradox of communication is that the more readily connected we get through technology, the less emotionally connected we may get to each other. We equate efficient interaction to emotional proximity and nuances of personal interaction are lost. It is this observation of present day communication and changes in human interaction that has heightened my interest in memory, loss and transition.

I’m interested in how we curate and publicly present our best selves. I’m also intrigued how objects, once relevant to our everyday lives, become obsolete. As a sculptor, I use a variety of materials such as metal, wood, fabric and concrete. With a balance of materials both permanent and impermanent, I am exploring the memories we carry, the traces we leave and the role the object plays in this dynamic.
