As an artist, I examine systems of power and influence in our culture
such as retail stores, web-based search engines and most recently medical systems. I am intrigued by the connections, limits and exceptions to these systems. The ubiquity of these platforms creates a psychological presence in our lives; they become our cube of space that consumes us rather than vice versa. The boundaries that define where these commercial environments begin and end are blurred. In a similar way, I create new structures, alternative constructs that take the form of the space they inhabit.

I like to subvert my collected materials and information and locate them in a new environment. Through appropriation, research and manipulation, I re-contextualize these mass-consumed interfaces to analyze and consider their use and presence in my own life, but also to critically consider how they are changing the world we live in.

My process begins with a broad overview or mapping of the infrastructure, examining the framework and asking question after question. I spend a lot of time considering each component and how
it functions. This collection of information becomes obsessive for me, searching far, wide and everywhere in between. I am following methods of scientific observation while creating the projects. I
approach the task - subject thinking spatially and then work back to the aesthetic form that each component will take. My design methodology is heavily influenced by conceptual art strategies.

Looking for connections and systems, I create spaces through a range of media including graphic/information/environmental design, sculpture and photography. Drawing from economics and behavioral sciences, the projects take multiple points of view and this often leads to collaborations. For instance, the Profile Cube installation allowed me to work closely with a psychologist, computer scientistand architect. Collaborative approaches inform my teaching practice, as I work with students to create large scale exhibitions and design products. I enjoy the variety in my practice between teaching and creating work for exhibition; each segment informs the other.
