Within making, I am seeking a release of the internalized anxiety we repress day to day attempting to survive in this world. We live in a culture of oversaturation and stimulation - 24hr media cycles regurgitating what they want the public to be focused on, underpaid employees serving overpriced goods, the over prescription of pharmaceuticals leading to deaths of the consumer, developers kicking neighbors out of generational homes for their own greed. These class system imbalances add a weight to our lives and subconscious consistently. My work is an exploration of using or representing commonplace objects and tools found in retail settings, political spaces, and demolition sites; navigating these items outside of original intent in a new and healing context.
