Artist Statement

Intimacy is a constant thread in my work. My recent sculptures translate the virtual into the physical through 3D printed models replicated through molds. Since my work begins digitally, it can be modified with no risk or consequence—just like our lives as portrayed on the Web via social media. These ambiguous, satirical products solicit response, asking viewers to engage with them in a spirit of discovery while questioning our integration of the synthetic into the natural.
