When I was much younger, I loved Sylvia Plath, and that is probably still in there and influential on a resonant level because I memorized her poems.

I went from a dancer to a painter, experimented with sound, went back to dance, continued experimenting with sound, started painting with light (making video). This is where I am now: using my body to capture sound and light and then building compositions from that.

Conduits of the hydrosphere took me a very long time to coalesce into a body of work that I felt I could explain properly. The philosophical text will hopefully be out in the next year. Until then, I hope that people will listen deeply and look at the artist book’s images, and maybe be curious enough to ask me questions.

Post doom romance is a collaborative project between myself and Mykel Boyd
