My research and artistic practice question the political, scientific, economic, and social systems surrounding energy production through both a global and local lens. I am interested in how these systems are intrinsically tied to the land and its development, and the contemporary condition of a planetary environmental consciousness.
Through exploration of structures that represent fossil fuel production within our landscape such as coal mines, power plants and oil refineries, I approach the issue of power production with awareness of its ecological connection. I reach out to a variety of professionals such as economists, journalists, lawyers, engineers, and scientists, to implement an interdisciplinary approach to art and with a careful eye for observation that integrates ideas and moves beyond traditional boundaries.
Through informal notations of DIY energy projects, studies on sustainability, I investigate the importance of abundant sustainable energy and explore what is possible through reflection, creativity and invention, while understanding that both systems exist simultaneously.
