Statement of Work

My work for the past 6 years has been focused largely on my role as the Co-Founder/Co-Director of the artist group, Whoop Dee Doo. I attempt to create installations that transform their housing spaces through the unorthodox use of common and affordable materials and DIY lighting and sound components.

I have recently been quite inspired by Bertolt Brecht's theories concerning theatrical presentation, in particular, the "estrangement effect". I feel a strong connection to this concept and am working to integrate it into my solo installation work as well as adapt it to performance pieces in non-theatrical settings.
