I am interested in exploring individual and collective memory and how they build the foundation of our identity. Who we are is contingent on what we remember, and how we use those memories to construct new narratives. Through memory, I explore ideas of identity, gender, narrative, and visibility. 

In my work, I use materials like aircraft cable, concrete, glass, mirrors, and charcoal that are combined with other seemingly more docile: fabrics, cotton, talcum powder, and cold porcelain. These two categories bring together the components of strength and precariousness.

This almost necessary duality operates as alchemical materials do: they work in synergy generating changes.

Texts, poems, and human voices are incorporated into my works as a palimpsest of memories.
