Throughout my career, my work has embraced liminality, otherness and cyclical exploration. It’s been interpersonal and intersectional- cherishing the idea that art can be political through form. As such, I have been endless fascinated with feminine archetypal energies and how they manifest in western and/or American society. I’ve utilized both what is considered to be “high” and “low” cultural phenomena– ancient mythologies, hxtories, natural sciences, pop culture, technologies. I have often thought of myself as a personal anthropologist, attempting to describe both structural and individual culture through a queer feminist lens. This has led me to a range of output: video, sculpture, performance, fashion, zines, gifs, coding, 3D modeling, and social practice.
Building on different avenues of research, my practice has recently evolved to focus on the socio-political implications of the demonization of pleasure, witchcraft and folk magic, medicine and community. Out of this research, my practice has coalesced into a project called Other Dust, which among other things functions as a psycho-spiritual consultancy platform. Other Dust is a fusion of my studies and creative interests- creating a platform to help people embrace their skepticism and personal agency through what is widely considered “magic”. To me, magic is not about creating illusions, rather embracing the parts of ourselves (body and mind) that western civilization, capitalism, christianity has taught us to ignore. This project creates opportunities for people to reconnect with their intuition and encourage ongoing self-discovery.
