Bio:

My work challenges socio-political contexts of the American psyche, specifically as it pertains to power structures, social ideologies, and gender inequality. Having been raised in the South with a fairly conservative upbringing, I am in constant negotiation between cultural archetypes and identity. My transdisciplinary approach to installation allows me to reflect on materials as cultural signifiers, positioning objects for what they are, not what we have told them to be. By creating psychological spaces with light and projected messages, I introduce the viewer to their subconscious desires, allowing them to recognize their conditioning by eliminating the patriarchal scenario.
