"I use tangible objects combined with clay to create hybrid forms that entice viewers to exercise curiosity. I am interested in experimentation and its unforseen outcomes, human curiosity, and how objects display their relationship with time. My goal is to cultivate these feelings and facilitate a purely cognitive experience.”
