Through my work, I explore the phenomenology of body-space relations, questioning where experience and imagery converge and cross over. The work glides between dimensions, disciplines, and media seeking always to expand the spatial imagination. Themes emerge at the intersections of the body and architecture, graphics, and the systemic, with an underlying itch to reveal the emptiness and contingency that pervade everything.
