ARTIST STATEMENT

Sculpture is an aesthetic language I use to bridge the gap between reason and emotion. Drawing from history, narrative, emotional affect, and the senses, my artwork synthesizes scientific research from information into knowledge through an intently subjective human experience. I interpret the poetics of statistical information by translating data into lines, forms, and materials that reveal abstract concepts and unseen phenomena as communicative, sensory, aesthetically engaging artworks that explore the ways in which culture and society have been shaped by science and technology throughout time.

The deep disconnect between scientific rationality and the emotional nature of human experience draws into question where we find meaning and how we seek to answer fundamental questions about life. My work seeks to transcend the divide from objective scientific data towards that of experiential knowledge.
