My work is driven by an investigation into physicality and how we interact with the physical world. My Body is the surface where what I consider myself and my inner world touch my environment and the outer world, which shapes each other. Taking Karan Barad’s assertion of the notion of matter as “a stabilizing and destabilizing process of iterative intra-activity”, I want my work to acknowledge the presence of a non-material surface and bring materiality to space.

Immaterial bodyweight examines the powerful connection between my body’s performative acts and the clay’s reverberation of its making. Such is created through clay’s ability to freeze a moment that embodies my actions, retaining them like memory.  This embodiment is amplified by taking the clay body of my weight to explore the limits of the physical [and literal] limits of a body’s ability to push and shape another body.
