Artist Statement

Her research-focused art practice examines concepts of distance - geographic, economic and temporal - approached through ethnography, archival research, walking, installation, photography and nonfiction filmmaking. With a sense of place and historical research, her work seeks to unravel the nature of memory, labor, language, gesture and the icons of every day. She is currently at work on a project exploring sites of civil rights struggles.
