ABOUT

BIO

 

b. 1987

Born and raised in Mississippi, I now live in Iowa with my husband and daughter.

 

 

PERSONAL STATEMENT

 

I construct events and formations that explore the emergence and fractalization of artificial objects and environments. Each system utilizes variated repetition as a motif by which multiple sets of comparable visual information are exploited in a false attempt to obtain meaning from pattern.

MASTER OF FINE ARTS THESIS

 

Video Science: The Camera as Sense Organ

Digital Video

Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts, Washington University in St. Louis

Defended May 8th 2014

 

Abstract: The moving image exists at the interstice of art and science not only because it acts as a representation of human sight but also because it exemplifies the observational processes related to the scientific gaze. As such, film and video have extended human sense-perception properties by mimicking and manipulating the natural processes of the optic nerve. The capture – and in many cases, the simulation – of movement generated from the progression of images reveals a new sphere of human consciousness as it relates to the dimensions of motion, space, and time... The goal of my work is to enable my audience to observe the infinitesimal changes that take place as moments in time are created. Video is a device that I employ to make greater parallels between the absolute and the ordinary. By blurring the lines between artistic practice and scientific process, I strive to create a visual methodology which concerns itself with the construction and documentation of microcosmic environments and events resulting from chemical processes.
