I have always been a curious person.  I enjoy learning about new ideas and materials.  I
have always been hungry for a life of creative production and education.  

What is your relationship with New Media?

Please, tell us about the work you are presenting in Future Bodies

I am grateful to be showing my recent work developed for Cadence, an exhibition with
photographer Kim Weston at the Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven.  It includes AR,
VR, and generative animations built around the observation of noisy figures.

What are you looking forward to during the symposium?

Connecting to a wider community of artists.  I’m excited for the opportunity to discover
new work in person for just about the first time since the beginning of the Pandemic.
