Artist Statement

 

As a storyteller, I use art and the medium of video to create narratives that explore my personal experiences and surroundings. Exploration is an important aspect of my work. By continually altering my process through research and experimentation, I further my understanding of the narrative devices and processes found in other media such as film, videogames, music and literature. By applying these narrative devices and processes to video, I am progressively creating narrative structures that reflect my personality and influences. This process of constant exploration reflects my need to develop a connection. It is through this need to connect that I find reason for making my work. Through creation, I gain an understanding of those who came before me and a realization of myself in relation to others.
