Artist Statement

I position myself somewhere between the journalist, the amateur, the maker and the naive interloper, perverting each of these roles and inserting myself into the complex practices of others. The people with whom I work take the form of collaborators, teachers, and subjects, and though they may be curious about how they will be framed by an "artist," their skepticism consistently challenges what might otherwise be a single-minded execution. My methodology results in symbolic objects, documentation and narrative that speak to the story of their making more than the sanctity of objects themselves
