The focus of my work is failed communication. I am interested in the multiplicity of language and the subsequent disconnect between individuals. I use an encoded iconography to layer meanings within the work and defamiliarize both myself and the viewer with our modes of communication. With these icons, I restage my personal experiences with miscommunication. Ultimately, I want the viewer’s experience of the work to mimic my own experiences with ambiguous communication: the rise of uncertainty, the obsessive return to analysis, and the desire to unearth true meaning.
