My exploration revolves around the investigation of light, sound, space, and time; studying drone, repetition, vibrations, and the subsequent patterns that emerge. I construct environments with a constant and dominating tone or mood; presenting atmospheres for mental and physical navigation. I often work with the horizon line, which formally and historically alludes to the landscape and provides a sense of orientation. Themes of comfort course through the work, intertwined with references to psychology, architecture, the landscape, atmospheric science, and astronomy. These ideas can be traced through my use of photography, installation, digital media, video, sound and drawing.
