Photos and press release for this artist.

My work revolves around the reclamation and subversion of public space through interventions and performance. The results are documented using photographs, sculpture, and video that are integrated into mixed-media installations. In 1996 my studio practice moved into the street to have direct and immediate interaction with a public audience. I use on-site materials to develop performances and sculptures. Two viewing opportunities exist for my work, first as a witness to the event itself in public and second as a viewer watching the mediated documentation of the event. My process is physical and conceptual as I juxtapose dissimilar elements, objects, or materials to create an unexpected form that is often comedic.
