Through my work, I attempt to explore how the global relates to the individual, and the two often exist as different expressions of the same experience as opposed to separate categories in themselves. I’m particularly drawn to themes of order versus disorder, identity, and multiplicity. Aesthetically, I like to make use of repetition and objects that have been removed from their typical context. I enjoy creating multimedia pieces because I can draw on my training in music, sound design, and the visual arts to construct complex, immersive environments within a single work. This lets me represent my ideas more precisely. “scrutinize” explores identity formation and the idea that part of our self-concept is based on how we imagine others viewing us. The piece focuses on the implications of this, and asks the extent to which it is possible to have a stable identity when the process through which we form identity is itself unstable.
