Inspired by informal storytelling traditions, I work within the fringes of culture with an aim to modernize and advocate for the reshaping of values. By employing comedy as a form of subversive critique I create chaotic visions of cartoonish worlds.
Working in the mediums of video, fiber, illustration and games, I reprocess master narratives of contemporary media and recycle their content into encounters that expose underlying power structures. My work playfully draws on these elements and asks the viewer to become an active participant in their narrative experience and their own subversive player.
