I am interested in how ideas and systems shape how we engage with bodies across space. For me, the idea of an asymptote (two lines that approach each other but never touch) acts as a persistent metaphor for thinking about the intimate distance that persists between two points. Within this space is room for the longing to connect to the physical, the desire to transcend it and the systems that work by reenforcing it. I use mediums that avoid direct physical contact, opting instead for forms of mark-making that rely on light, sound and movement in space.
