I am interested in the importance of lingering and rest, and explore these acts through:
(x) paintings that shift in response to changing light, vantage points, and slow looking
(y) thought experiments in other media such as sculpture, writing, printed matter, and food research
My practice begins with research that considers how slowness, duration, and (day)dreams offer means of resisting the acceleration of life-cum-global capitalism, and re-framing the realities and futures of climate change. I wonder how rest and waiting can inform understandings of larger topics of labor and ecology. These constellation of thoughts are greatly influenced by the writings of Hito Steyerl, Byung-Chul Han, Italo Calvino, Slavoj Žižek, and Walter Benjamin.
