Light Installation and Gallery Design - view of main installation element. The installation occupied the entire Malinda Jolley Mortin Gallery at the Zuckerman Museum of Art. It was designed around five other artworks chosen by the curator's for the show "See Through Walls." A combination of straight and curved walls, rigging cables, and strategic lighting were designed to partition the space and frame each work, visually connecting them to the surrounding architecture.

artist statement

My work transforms a personal amalgam of aesthetic, philosophical, and religious ideas into abstract forms that incorporate artificial light to evoke platonic questions about reality, originality, and purity, as well as pragmatic questions about the sustainability of the environment, our ideas, and our technologies.
