Nature, the act of play, and technology are the main subjects that I explore. With each theme in mind I create multimedia installations that evoke an awkward and playful sense of energy and humor. My aim is to transcend the barriers of a given art medium, and to blur the boundaries between disciplines.
My interest in landscape and nature derives from the American southwest in which I was raised. I grew up surrounded by incredibly beautiful landscapes that continue to amaze me, and my early fascination with the outdoors grew into obsession. As a result this work is a response to, and exploration of, environmental concerns. Cell phone towers fabricated to look like trees parody our cultures conflicted need to exploit and conserve the earth. Using a wide range of media, I wish to articulate, understand and emphasize the artificial within contemporary landscapes. In this particular project, I am influenced by Ecofeminist theory. This exhibition presents visual interpretations of the Utah landscape, along with ruminations on the correlation between the treatment of the natural world and women within a patriarchal society.
