VDA Artist Profile #79
I work through the media of movement, time, and the body in a time when technology draws us away from experiencing our embodied selves. Many technological platforms now use live stream as a means of connecting distant people and spaces. But how do these ever present “lives” shift our own experience of live-ness in our physical form? I intersect live technology and improvisation in a myriad of ways to experiment around these questions. This research takes on different forms from installation to proscenium performance, and through it I aim to create space for viewers to confront their own “lives.”
