Artist Statement



I began my creative career as a dancer, using my body and its relationship to space, movement, time, and others to explore the boundaries between subtle consciousness and the physical experience. Over time my medium of exploration has grown from traditional dance forms to include performance art, sculpture, film, photo, and the written word. Through these various mediums I have delved into our perception and occupation of the 4th dimension: time.
In performance, sculpture, video, and words I find myself continually returning to the movement in life; change, growth, and decay, all forms of motion made possible by the 4th dimension. Concepts of event and simultaneity further allow me to investigate how we share our experience of both the 3rd and 4th dimensions. At times these explorations appear literal as in duration-based performance works, at other times more abstract – such as a physical object that is a reaction to, or a direct product of, a 4th dimensional perception.
The goal of all this is to use creativity to dig into the difficult to describe and bordering on impossible to quantify human experience of time and the present. As I see it to begin to understand time and ones relationship to it is to begin to answer some of our most enduring questions: where we come from, what is the present, and where are we going. Questions so fundamental that they side-step all cultural boundaries and appeal directly to humanity at large.
