create light and space

hello there.
pause.
take an intentional breath in.
now.
exhale twice as long as you inhaled.
observe.
you are the artist of your human experience.
repeat.
this is the slow exhale.

artist statement

 
I am a creator and a storyteller. For me personally, photography has always been a visual system that I drew on in my life but I tend to push beyond the limitations of one single medium of expression. It's all about the slow exhale. Layers and intersections are the hallmark of the way I express myself and move in the world, in particular where disparate ideas or fields of study overlap. I exist in the Venn Diagram's center. I enjoy writing fiction and non-fiction; I also tell stories using images and video. My daily practice entails creating light and space - a testament to the etymological origin of photography, "writing with light," as well as creating a sense of space in one's consciousness and body through metaphysical practices. The content in my work is often aimed at considering the origins and implications of consciousness and how we can become more expansive as human beings. Through my art I aim to convey feelings of presence and to reveal the illusion of boundaries and separateness. I especially try to tell the story of our shared human experience. I'm interested in how neuroscience can explain consciousness but also what our intuition tells us about it (both/and). I believe the breath is our most potent asset.
