As a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Locust Grove, Virginia, I utilize modes of performance, painting, and installation to conduct site-specific and material-based research, considering how history, storytelling, and bodily experience can inform and define the relationship of self to site. I engage a particular place through durational observation and embodied inquiry, moving through the landscape and encountering nonhuman entities and objects that I interact with and respond to. The result is an accumulation of multimedia projects, experiments, and artifacts that become materials for constructing immersive, social-sculptural environments. As an outcome of site-specific study, the spaces support the continuation of my research through the connections and perceptions of the viewer continually recreating the original site.
