I make installations, perform and make sound works. While my work is not solely sound-based, I often use this as a starting point for my work because of my background in sound. As a result, my work deals with the intricacies of the emphemeral in the context of perception. Technologies are not used for the sake of that technology, but to create a perceptive effect. In my recent audiovisual performances and installations I explore the interaction between sound, light and physiological effect on the body. To explore crossmodal sensory correspondences, I’ve paired sounds with with the sense of touch, taste and smell. .
