I am a new media installation artist, using dimensionality to explore the human experience through personal narratives. Personal includes individual community perspectives and does not shy from the multi-cultured sources from which an identity is formed. Mediums include photography and video performance, interactive installation, assemblage and found objects. The works range from large scale and outdoors, to interior textile-like peices, all the way to shelf-size sculptures that I assemble as mini installations. A series of digitally processed photographs was born out of the miniature works. I use the lens to continue my investigation into dimensionality, revisioning the miniatures as true-to-life installations, in imaginary environments. I am influenced by American Art aesthetics, and by movements such as echo-feminism, mysticism, and symbolism. I look for materials that hold no unique value but are basic materials in our environments. I study their characteristics, to tweak out their meaning. The universally symbolic imagery I use with these materials continues my attempt at discovering personal meaning through connecting to humanity’s experience at large. I am curious about the ephemeral, and its influence on our experience, based here and now but built in a continuum from the past to future.
