Artist Statement
Through my work I explore our human regard for other life forms and the psychic bond we have with animals we may never come in contact with. I use a range of media and processes including sound, digital animation, sculpture, and installation to create a context in which the power structure between humans and other species is deconstructed and reconfigured. If our relationship to the living world is not based on a hierarchy of owner and possession, or superior and inferior, a far more complex interaction becomes available, one in which alienation is diminished and the unique vitality and intelligence of all expressions of life can be recognized for their inherent value.
