NEWS/ I received the 2017-18 Tennessee Artist Fellowship from the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts.

UPCOMING / Terra Anima at the Spencer Museum of Art. Opens: September 19, 2017

ABOUT/ I am interested in finding alternative methods of interpreting, recording, and visualizing history. Inspired by institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Smithsonian, and Wikipedia, which quixotically attempt to reflect all of cultural production, I have spent the past thirteen years investigating the logic of the museum and how it effects our perceptions of cultures and their histories. The results of these activities have taken the form of a fictional museum titled the MuuM. This imagined institution contains a collection of drawings, videos, sculptures, and immersive environments – each work being different in material but consistently focused on how historical record distorts our view of the past. My work does not attempt to remove these distortions; it fixates on them, and turns them into images and material.
