I make task-based encounters between bodies, things, and the space around them. My work examines the relationship between late-capital post-industrial time-sense and body-sense, where physique has been eclipsed by other man-made machines as useful -- or valuable -- technology. Expanding beyond exercise to the grammars of functional movement, dance, and physical labor, my practice aims to challenge and reshape this contemporary body schema. I make sculpture, performance, and drawings to collapse thinking into doing, reinstating the body’s relevance as functioning object, tool, channel, and ultimately site of imagination
