My installation work is research driven and every work begins with the same question, "how does our culture contribute to our sense of self ?" The interactive component of my work is one way of making this question observable. I employ interactivity to highlight the physical presence of the viewer's body and the sensation of being present. My emphasis on "presence" derives from earlier performance work that sought to collapse the distinction between subject and object.
The research pages present the conceptual frame for my art work. They also contain links to relevant sites and in some cases a bibliography of readings.
