Page 1 | Biography


My work deals with our living environments and depicts urban textures, homes, and building structures. I attempt to reconstruct spaces to examine the underlying forms as they are the "art" around us every day, like a blanket out of building blocks.My recent video project, "Almost There," brings the viewer deep beneath the sea to a floating mental landscape. The video is comprised of three studies of an underwater house, each one accompanied by a conversation in subtitles about the nature of being connected, of movement and loss, and of wanting to get back to a party. A low-tech contemplation of today's high tech mind. A new series of prints entitled "Outlook: Cloudy" is a good companion to "Almost There" video and photographs. This series portrays a mood of foggy disengagement pervading both personal and urban spaces. The work combines drawing, water color and digital collage and marks a return for me to 2-dimensional work.My other videos are a mix of animation and experimental video. My recent animation "Head Room" premiered at the Haus der Kultur der Welt in Berlin in November 2011. The project consists of a video as well as paintings and drawings. The animation depicts described rooms based on interviews of family members. In the animation "Berlin Skin" I used photographs of textures and forms and then animated these creating the aura of the city. This piece has been shown in galleries, museums and projected into urban environments around the world. The video and digital print project, "Danger in the Streets of the Sky," played with VJ tools to generate new combinations of materials. The work was about the physical feeling of living in a dense urban city and contrasted, among other elements, grids with birds, as a metaphor of our physical presence in city structures.
