STATEMENT:

i am a slum kid and i am a scholar.

my work focuses on family, conversation and sometimes food. i use new media–photography, video, audio – to create a diverse range of installations that are heavily researched and curated. navigating family in an unfamiliar place involved a trip to croatia where i located a village of my last name on the side of a mountain in the northern part of the country (photo on left). i shared a meal with an unknown relative, milan, and learned that my paternal ancestors come from this place.

my latest work involves heartache. i asked my mother to write in her journal and record memories of times from her past where she experienced grief, doubt, confusion, sadness or anger. the resulting gallery is just a preview of the work that will be compiled for this project, and includes photographs of her journal entries along with stills from the video clips of her heart surgery from august 2016 courtesy of johns hopkins.
