I tell stories and create scenes about technology, labor, and the future. Sometimes what I make is analog and stationary, sometimes it’s digital and time based. I take my visual cues from science fiction and horror, and use the inefficient, grotesque, and surreal to counteract dominant narratives of technological progress and neoliberal futurity. I am interested in the way the body is disabled, distorted, and hybridized in the name of efficiency and progress.

Using images of rupture between the technological and biological, and between the body’s interior and exterior, I question what it means to be a productive body. Is it the body that neoliberalism demands, one that is always willing and ready to work, or is it the one that produces for its own sake: breathing, oozing, and excreting.
