In works across sculpture, drawing, and sound, I explore how the material properties and aesthetic attributes of specific environments work to create, sustain, and uphold the mission and values of the spaces and communities that reside within them. In particular, I am concerned with the materials and aesthetics commonplace in the rural-familial spaces of my upbringing. Within my work, I investigate the role played by these materials and aesthetics in creating environments which are at times supportive, yet simultaneously alienating and prohibitive to myself and other individuals who occupy and pass through them.

My work is based in a redeployment of these materials and aesthetics into speculative structures and forms. This process and these works pry at a guiding question: if, in their initial use, these materials and aesthetics were responsible for composing and sustaining at times hostile environments, what can their reconfiguration, reapplication, and redeployment bring?
