I am interested in celebrating the senses in an otherwise technological era. However accessible, ubiquitous, or pervasive the digital realm and its incarnations may become, I firmly believe that there is still endless potential for discovery, play, and invention in experiencing the material world. In my work I cultivate communal, material, sensory, and experiential intimacy. I want to make things to share with people, rather than through a screen and the internet. I want to hand things to people and ask them what they think, or see what they make of them.
