About Me

Personal Statement

I create sonic and visual environments for transformative experiences. I use flameworked glass in an interdisciplinary practice incorporating sound, light, fire, electronics, dance, and film to address emotional, spiritual, and physical states and thresholds. My preferred materials are invisible or transparent: sound and clear glass. My work is made with fire: this elemental process speaks to my recurring subjects of human connection, self-knowledge, and flight and stasis. I build environments and situations to which people privately bring their deepest selves to visually public installations. Outputs are experiential: performance, music, film, installation, and sculpture. All of my work contains engagement with collaborators or participants, and much of it is interactive.
