Through my work I have explored how deeply emotions are intertwined with each other and with the world around us. I am fascinated by what emotion will rise from another, the objects connected to them, and the emotional expectations for different relationships and genders. I have been exploring what scenes create or signify a certain emotion, and how people bring out emotions in others, and what happens when they are subverted.
I am inspired by life experiences, and weave real conversations and events that I have been a part of into my creative work. Drawing on life and using concrete, sensory details creates a real feeling story world.
This quarter, through writing and audio/visual work I have explored sadness: in expectations, in objects, in anger, nostalgia, and absence.
