Statement

Digging through public and private archives, I conduct long-term investigations on historical and personal events based on “facts.” I reinterpret these stories with the use of photography, video, archival resources, and objects constructed from everyday materials. The images and installations I create act as a catalyst for a fantastical exploration of the psychology that one attaches to memory and place, putting particular emphasis on the role of women in these histories. Through humor and tragedy I create a new way of re-evaluating life, death, and the mythology of our own history.
