My multidisciplinary practice focuses principally on performance and installation, addressing environmental issues and current events that affect us regionally and globally, such as human rights, women's right to choose. I seek public participation via story sharing and collaboration with artists of various disciplines.
I often develop my projects over the years. Performances are informed by passerby responses to questions I pose. I make costumes and objects out of various materials such as drier's lint, fabric, hangers, yarn, wax, wire. I use video, photography, sound, and social media as a medium.
I conduct workshops that encourage upcycling and human interactions and perform participatory walks to people anywhere in the world via Twitter.
Walks, movement, dance, voice, prepared text fashioned from gathered information, and improvisations shape what I present to the public.
