As a trauma survivor, my investment in creating artwork comes from questioning and readdressing the development of identity after a traumatic experience. Working primarily in sculpture, installation, sound and image, I explore the mind’s adaptation of how memory perceives and comprehends a distressing event. Through the use of functionality, mnemonic translations and transformations, my work simultaneously references the development of my identity as a survivor and the current relationship created between survivor, artist and society.  This constellation of mediums constructs an evolving map to guide viewers through my obsessive and often complex interpretations of trauma, as it seeks to define survivors.
