My current practice focuses on site-generated works. Rather than looking at a place and seeking to transform it through my imagination, I am using the specific history of a site as my starting point, unearthing a-heroic narratives from conversations and trips to historical museums and libraries. From this research, material choice and display unfold. Site-generated work also insures another important element in my practice: collaboration. Not only do I seek to work in collaboration with other artists, but my outsider position requires that I work with people who are experts through their lived experience or through the archive. A research-based practice employs my roles as an artist, social scientist, and curator.
