Statement

As a Live Artist, I contrive performances, rituals, and situations for observers or participants. Ordinary interactions coupled with critical theory feed my performance and writing practice. My work seeks to think through, what I’ve recently been referring to as, ‘blind communion’. Not blind as in unknown or unseen but as an expansion of possibility, serendipity, and chance encounter. Since 2014, I’ve been focusing on an elemental quartet of large-scale installation performances and a series of minimal one-to-one encounters. I’m attempting to embody some of the ideas in my writing about affect, community, intimacy, and proximity. My work assumes an ephemerality and lack of artifact. It’s live, process-driven, and product-resistant. I try to stretch these limits, i.e. the limitations of normative time and event, through performative photography and film work. I’m encouraging myself to explore mixed-media object-based markers of live work, as well. My practice is exhibitable, and I’ve been thinking through more project-appropriate methods of documenting my one-to-one encounters. Along the way, I wish to infuse more poetry into our engagements with art and each other.
