About:

My current body of work includes site-specific performances, installation art, video and multi-media projects. I am interested in creating projects that place contemporary art and performance in non-traditional environments. I often collaborate with dancers and musicians on these projects to expand the audience’s view of where art can reside.

Birdhouse Longing I placed an ipod playing a loop of a dancer longingly caressing and laying on large balls inside a birdhouse and left birdhouse in front of a public elementary school. If someone was to peek inside the birdhouse they would see the short film of the dancer. The challenges? The sun was so bright that day; from a distance it was difficult to see that there was a film inside. When I had placed the birdhouse to test earlier in the day it was cloudy and the film was visible from many feet away.
