I create paper sculptural installations that examine the social dynamics, textures, and histories of specific sites and communities. Elements from social research, exchanges, and geographic studies are used to build a model that looks at the stories and forces that have shaped our contemporary landscape. While the locations investigated in the work shift, I am most drawn to objects and images that speak to the specificity of place and how issues of equity and justice manifest in the built environment.
