My work exists as a visual record of the space between my body and the surrounding world. I create sculptures in order to explore the human body and challenge the notion of what else could be considered a “body.” Is the term only limited to animate objects and living things, or could a body be anything that shares aesthetic qualities with our own? Where does the line exist? Through referencing the space between these bodies and the interaction found within such a space, I bring into question the correlation of form and existence. What kind of relationship exists between lichen growing on a tree and the tree itself? Where does one organism cease to exist and the other begin? And at what point do they actually share the same body? While challenging this notion of shared space between bodies, I also seek to blur the boundaries between differing materials. What happens when glass appears naturally occurring and wood appears manufactured? And what overall effect can this have on the mutual existence of the objects? My aim is pursuing the interactions born out of these dialogues, in order to better understand the systems that permeate our existence.
