About me

Location Baltimore, MD
Introduction I am an artist and improviser working in the fields of sound, kinetics, assemblage, and optics. My primary interest is in the process of discovery experienced through observation and experimentation. Playing a fundamental role in my creative processes as well as in their realization is the use of silence, non-intention, and natural forces to produce self-sustaining systems of movement, sound, and optical phenomena such as shadow, caustics, reflection, refraction, and projection. Works are presented as performance installations / interventions and as autonomous, kinetic assemblage-environments. My performance practice deals with the specifics of the particular space and the establishment of a situational field wherein a balance between a network of autonomous components and their intervention is presented and modified. In addition to solo activities, I create sound and light design in collaboration with dance, film/video and theatre artists.
