STATEMENT:

i am a slum kid and i am a scholar.

my work focuses on family, conversation and sometimes food. i use intermedia –a mix of photography, video, and 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 or above). i shared a meal with an unknown relative, milan, and learned that my paternal ancestors come from this place.

in the fall of 2018 my stepfather, who has been with my mother for over 20 years, was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. his outcome for survival according to experts at johns hopkins is very low, under 30% chance. i received the phone call of his prognosis while i was at the ocean with my husband. untitled (ocean) is a video and haiku that explores my state of mind at the time of hearing about his illness.

my work is deeply personal. i use my life and experiences because they are my truth.
