I grow crystals, interact with organisms, and reformulate depictions of humans found in the media. Thought these processes, I find concerns that pertain to the body, morphology and culture, while the results of my work exist to highlight our prerogatives in understanding nature.

The tropes of nature formulate as alchemy, and render our relationship to the mysterious decadence that assimilates our environment and culture. Mimesis is a reproduction. It is the mimicry of nature, the presentation of the self and the way we control the impressions others make about us.

It is our understanding of nature that is responsible for the way we relate to each other.
