My work attempts to invert the process of science, to encourage the viewer to self-examination, to explore a realm where individual truths deposit layer by layer. I want to compel the viewer to navigate the fault lines of human interaction, to seek out and explore places where things shift, places where truth comes into question. My work involves both examination of existing rifts and the combination of elements to create new pathways for interpreting everyday existence.
