For the past five years I have used light in my work to investigate the paradoxical nature of human existence. I have created pieces that present the body as a mysterious vessel; one that contains and leaks; is solid and porous; and is composed of visible and invisible matter. The form and content of my work are inspired by my curiosity regarding the human body and the way it is depicted in both art and science. My investigations revolve around three questions: How can the enigmatic body serve as a metaphor for the mystery of life and death. How do the body, mind and spirit connect? We are not simply flesh and blood, so how do we extend beyond our corporeal limits?
