My work explores three interconnected dichotomies: knowledge/labor, production/consumption and body/space. The first dichotomy probes the idea of production both hard and soft - using machines to produce or destroy objects - investing objects with form (in the philosophical definition of form as structuring-principle).
The material practice can be described as a de-economization and re-contextualization. The second exploration challenges the ideological distinction between the producer and the consumer from the viewpoint of experience - the distinction between products worthy of aesthetic consumption and the low grade aesthetic experiences afforded to the commercial consumer.
The third dichotomy explores the ways in which the body articulates its presence in an increasingly mobile and voyeuristic universe: how the presence of the body inscribes location and lends itself to a politics of affect-driven territorialization.
