I am interested in everyday, ordinary and domestic items. I tend to challenge their form as I de-contextualize them so I can reconstruct them. This intervention can be fleeting and it usually outperforms the material’s confines as well as my own. Challenging my ingredients this way is about engaging the viewer to wear different types of lenses, and within that moment, create a memory that will resonate with him/her throughout time.
Working with domestic items are important because they represent who we are within our home; when we leave our safe haven, I wonder how does this affect who we are – how do we maintain our truth, or we do adopt different identities and why?
