I create site-generated projects and social sculpture that insert historical scenarios into present day situations. My background in craft orients my projects towards the continuities and ruptures in material, social, and utopic histories. My work engages objects as collaborators, agent-provocateurs and narrative instigators.
Research-based multimedia installations works have been shown in museums and galleries including: Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Soap Factory, Minneapolis, MN; The Society for Contemporary Craft, Pittsburg, PA; World Ceramic Biennale, Korea; KunstTREFFpunkt, Darmstadt, Germany; Artsonje, Seoul, Korea; Raid Projects, Los Angles, CA and the Bristol Biennial, England. Additionally, I am one of three editors of YoYoMagazine.org, an iterative online journal of arts, narrative and poetry.
I currently live in Chicago and am a lecturer in the Department of Visual Arts at The University of Chicago.
