Resting in a space between fiction and reality, the work I create, alter, or deconstruct, narrates place. Working with a variety of media, I am interested in the distortion of and experimentation with household and home-related images and objects. Interested in time, impermanence, and absence, I search to uncover and reveal a multitude of truths, or rather non-truths, that surround past experiences of home. Through my work, I question the reliability of emotion and human recollection. How might the way our minds portray experiences of the past differ from how they actually existed? Do the objects, fixtures, and spaces we once knew shift, distort, and change based on or current individual attachment or disassociation?

The work all ends with remnants; residual detritus of persons in places once called home.
