ARTIST STATEMENT

As an ally and collaborator with more-than-human agents, I attempt to transmute the voice of their raw material through archive and art as a means of inserting their stories into our anthropocentric histories. I work to explore speculative and existing means of communication through the use of objects and agents to open spaces for alternative understandings of more-than-human experiences and understandings. I seek to interrupt our human narratives regarding industrial colonization, technological advancement, our relationship to objects and the social & environmental injustices that stem from these histories and continue into our present. These conversations and collaborations, stories told in various forms and with other earthly collaborators and human relics, aim to serve as a means to better understand how collaborating with them in kinship can offer opportunities to right our past and present, for a more vibrant future.
