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. Themes of comfort course through the work, intertwined with references to psychology, architecture, and landscape. These ideas can be traced through my use of photography, video, digital media, sound and installation.
