My work aims to redefine people’s established assumptions about life, considering alternative models or philosophies to those represented in mainstream media. I seek projects that open minds, serve the community in which they are presented, and use budding technology in innovative ways. I am drawn to works that challenge the status quo and question art, one’s perception of reality, society, and what it means to be “normal.”
