As an artist, I am concerned with how our interactions between built and natural environments effects our emotional relationship to ”landscape” and in turn effects personal growth. Working through the human impulse to control the natural environment, I use silkscreened outdoor fabric, everyday objects, natural elements, and sound to create site-specific installations in response to place. Utilizing spatiality as a tool allows me to create new situations for the viewer to reconsider the relationship between themselves, architecture, and wilderness.

At the Saari Residence, I will focus on a series of artist books and accompanying built structures responding to Finnish architecture working in harmony with the environment, and their impact on social structure.
