Artist Statement

The 6 human senses dictate the understanding of our existence. Creating art is being able to manipulate those senses in order to place an audience outside the space which their bodies currently inhabit. It amazes me that our bodies and minds can be in two places at once. We physically stand in a gallery, sit in a movie theater, etc. while we allow the artist to mentally transport us away to a world they create. A world that may be bound by our senses, but not by barriers of impossibility. I want to create these worlds of grander with the knowledge I gain from studying how our senses map these spaces.
