“I utilize satire, humor, text, props, co-conspirators, and costumes, to skew one’s interpretation of the familiar. While I create a scenario that at first glance may not appear uncommon, upon closer inspection the appropriation and alteration of the image, object, or event, becomes apparent. Concerning the current condition of Western culture, with the mounting absurdity regarding the trajectory of our cultural evolution or de-evolution, reinforced by our social institutions, I will have plenty of inspiration for quite some time. I will continue to focus on elucidating the ways in which we are programmed to think and live. By engaging in performance and social interventions in the public sphere, I offer the viewer the opportunity to ponder the systems that influence our culture.”
