I am driven by the inherent meaning of materials, the myriad of transformative ways that energy can destroy and create and  redefine space not only in formal aesthetic approaches but in the expansion of new social paradigms. My work incorporates both approaches; taking form as site specific installation and social sculpture. Most of my work derives from recycled materials, deemed useless by most, I find new life from within. As in Pistoletto’s role of artist as artivator, I aim to challenge notions fueled by ignorance and  fear through collaborative work in sociopolitically tense areas, I recognize borders to be manmade; that the lives of all peoples are all equally priceless and that every person who suffers injustice is shared by all.
