Statement

In order to contend with the inevitable memory loss and neurodegeneration that comes with age, I work to map the process of memory storage and the certitude of forgetting. Through printing on paper and fabric, I rework the idea of memory through star shaped synaptic bursts with a mixture of archival and non archival materials. We are memory bound beings: The human body and mind are adept at collecting repetitive movement, experiences, and signs of emotional significance. While we can accumulate, it does not mean we may retain. It is in the face of loss and degradation, however, that these functions may either become useless or more valuable than ever. I am captivated by the paradoxical nature of a memory and its fallible condition that informs our identities and personal histories.
