My research based practice examines how collective memory is shaped and embodied by forms such as monuments or archives. My process is project based; each project begins with research into a temporal or physical site. Medium and method is guided by this research. Each project seeks to complicate the historical or social narrative it takes as subject and interrogates the way this history has been physically manifested.
I am an artist, archivist, and activist based in New Haven, originally from Brooklyn. My work has been shown mainly in New York, including at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, Recession Art and Gowanus Loft. My guerilla public art project, “National Register of Historic Places” was covered by Hyperallergic, TimeOut New York, Brownstoner and Urban Omnibus. I graduated from Yale in 2011 with a BA in fine art and received a masters in archives management from Simmons University in 2018.
