Creative Interests, Research + Innovations

My artwork, teaching, and research explore the relationship between, and integration of, digital and tactile media for meaningful artistic expression. Current studio practice and teaching includes experimentation with interdisciplinary and collaborative work strategies. Integrating digital projection and rapid prototyping processes with a traditional art installation practice allows development of innovative artistic expression, while driving a research agenda focusing on democratizing access to these processes for artists.
