“In occult philosophy today the world is hidden, and…only knowable in its hiddenness.” - Eugene Thacker
My artwork explores the desire for alternate realities and liminal space. Through sculptural objects and installation I investigate the use of story and symbols to mythologize natural phenomena, referencing our collective desire for escapism and secret knowledge. Within my work, mythology, scientific history and New-Age idealism become starting points for an investigation into the creation of meaning and the formation of knowledge. My material choices are governed by each material’s cultural history and its ability to impart meaning. Hair, leather, and cloth reference the body, memory and culture. Glass, with its aesthetic, scientific and practical history, represents preservation while simultaneously signifying fragility, impermanence, and transformation.
