Event details

My work is explicitly positioned between dialogues and discussions concerning site-specific installation, architecture, and expanded concepts of painting and photography. Implicitly, the work is dealing with dialogues around consciousness, perception and aspects of memory. Key concerns with this process is extending and finding relationships between the audience and the environment of the site through immersion, and consequently changing the perception of the viewer.
