In my work I explore the power of images and objects. I’m interested in their
communicability as well as their formal, social, and physical potential. Objects and
images are extremely powerful as they equally have the ability to identify or confuse. I
use this dynamic in combination with Pop and Hip-hop cultural references to investigate
the language of desire. I believe that our desires allow us to establish our identity if not
by literal translation, then as a device we use to separate from a designated “Other.” The
data, physical or digital, produced from the existence of these images and objects
becomes the subject of my investigation.
