My practice involves installations and performances that attempt to integrate the audience to alike or dissimilar personal histories through textiles and tactile objects. I use sculptures and sensorial experiences to bridge the gaps between vocalized or transcribed histories. I wish to bring people together through their mundane experiences and less utilized senses. My work is an attempt of making Art accessible to the large array of sensory capabilities of the audience. In my perspective this giving is an act of love, giving to those that I have yet to come in contact with directly letting the other into my life as they let me into their own. Through the act of performance I seek to delve into the spectrum of emotion that I feel and express them through the corporeal relationships in Dance and Theatre. Through garments I try to connect human experience to textile as a means of translating cultural and generational history to the wearer and the viewer. I attempt to retrace, reconnect and transmute historical identities though up-cycled repurposed, gifted, and recombinant materials from the environments that I occupy.
