Artist Statement: 
Through manipulating perspective, sense of distance, and visibility, I construct physical environments where the power dynamics of being with another person is rewired. Often combining different levels of intimacy, such as standing at a distance from someone yet feeling your bodies merge, my work encourages different interpretations of another person’s humanity to occupy your mind simultaneously, offering a layered perception of the Other—as an individual who exists independent of you and as a being that mirrors your consciousness. Centering on the act of mutual perception, my work reaffirms our existence in each other’s minds.
