My work inhabits the intersection of photography and sculpture, approaching the photograph and its usages as image, object, and intermediary. I search for meaning in disparates of source, subject, and application of materials, sounds, and environments, and seek to propose new relationships between social, political, and personal mythologies to develop alternative understandings of the banal and the spiritual. My work responds to questions surrounding masculinity, digital and physical bodily experience, and the tools that produce ritual, narrative, and simulacrum within these interrelated themes.
