ABOUT

I create physical and virtual spaces that break down hierarchical balance between architecture and occupants.
I create objects which subvert our understanding of the object and questions our sense of interaction and relationship. Through my work, I create tangible products from the intangible qualities of perception, femininity, and existentialism. I am driven by ideas of virtuality and phenomenological reactions, mediated through tools such as rapid prototyping, open source hardware/software, and the internet.
I hold an MFA degree for Media Art from University of California, Los Angeles and a Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute.
To that end, people have experienced my work at various events including: the DUMBO Arts Festival, the Hammer Museum with UCLA Game Lab, the Hong Kong - Shenzhen Biennale with Crisis Fronts, and SuperFront Gallery.
