This body of work engages direct sensorial experience beyond the visual. All of my work is participatory. The piece "Validity and Theory" is fabricated much like a three-dimensional rendering of an architect's two-dimensional drawings, and stimulates both mind and body with strategic anatomical pressure points and elaborate linear contours. The three self-portraits are intimate glimpses of visceral experience.

This work presumes the viewer as necessary to complete the compositions as well as the spirit of the work.
