I conceive and curate exhibitions and multimedia projects.
Interventions that make people pause and reflect delight me. My own approach involves tickling our innate curiosity or revealing details that hide in plain sight.
I have a background in architecture, design, and writing – a foundation that continues to inform my work. My practice, which spans over 10 years, is evolving constantly through meaningful collaborations with local and international creative talent, institutions, and cultural organizations.
I invite you to scroll through a selection of my projects below.
IN THE WORKS...
Sublime Substrate explores our inability to comprehend the vast, abstract curtain of algorithms suspended around us. The project acknowledges the charms of technologically-faciltated living, but cautions against simplistic narratives in which AI circumvents pesky human flaws or resolves any pain point if we offer up enough data.
The project also considers our lack of control over our own digital legacy, re-imagines how privacy is construed, and examines the nature of the mechanical gaze. Currently being scripted as a Choose Your Own Adventure sound-experience with support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
An exhibition about the erosion of solitude from contemporary culture. Two immersive installations housed in shipping containers invited passing pedestrians to reflect on what we readily give up in pursuit of constant connectivity.
