Through my artistic practice I examine the potential for amateur solutions to complex problems. I repurpose objects and transform materials into immersive installations composed of multiple handmade kinetic components. My method of making seeks to affirm the importance of resilience at a moment of increasing cultural conflict and ongoing environmental damage. Over the course of the past decade air has served as a principle medium in much of my artwork. I have compacted breath into water, trapped air inside car shaped inflatables, and inverted the airflow of salvaged vacuum cleaners to sustain transparent geodesic balloons. Air is a vital necessity while remaining nearly imperceptible.  The baffling qualities of the medium are emblematic of the complex problems that trouble contemporary being. I promote a method of making that balances ambition and uncertainty to allow for a humble reordering of everyday conditions.
