This body of work explores themes of family and the subversion of gender roles. I do so by examining the effect of  aesthetic representations of ordinary objects on perceptual experience. My work is designed to disrupt spaces that are typically perceived as mundane. I ask viewers to reflect on their own notions of safety, vulnerability, intimacy, trust and apathy towards the  objects that surround them.

I build structures that resemble everyday objects to encourage viewers to question — or simply become aware of — the ways that they interact with objects often found within their own homes. For example, there is a profound level of trust between a person and their furniture, this relationship is intimate and inherently vulnerable. My work does not capitalize on the physical interaction between the objects and the viewer, but rather the moment of perplexity in which the viewer lacks a conditioned response to the object at play. Through the tension that this interaction produces, I hope to provoke a dialogue between the viewer and their experiences, and to challenge their own preconceived knowledge .
