Long Description of what you do

Reality: Is the world the way we think it is? In what ways might our version of reality be distorted? Does it matter? Is there Absolute Truth? Can the Truth ever be fully known?
Perception: Reflections and refractions play with our perception, as does our inclination to see patterns in the random. In what sense is what I’m seeing ‘real’?
Our natural instinct is to make sense of the world and our place in it. Towards that end, my work explores the tension between reality and perception, to create spaces where we can make up our own narrative in complete safety.
