I currently live and work on the unceded, traditional and ancestral territories of the Coast Salish people, that includes the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) and Səlil̓wətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.  

In my practice, imagination, reflection and projection are interpreted both as methods in looking and as inner spaces; they are ways to see and ways to be. States of mind and of vision are explored through observation and introspection. Walking, transit and travel are ways employed to allow a slowness in looking and the opportunity to daydream. These experiences in space and time are recorded through methods of writing, photography and videography. I build installations in which this translation from moment to media is displayed to create immersion, or the illusion of it. In the multimedia installations, the gallery becomes a space in which to reflect and project: it too allows a slowness in looking, thinking and noticing.
