The focus of my work is the exploration of time and the everyday, with work ranging from textual interactive pieces to sculpture with embedded electronics to digital photography. I am interested in capturing and re-presenting fleeting moments, both in digital/virtual interactions as well as in physical space. My practice intends to slow viewers sense of time by protagonizing the everyday as defined by transient space and make them aware of their own quotidianity. I use photography as a time-based medium, pushing each image far from the expected notions of the still and paused.
