I am interested in the idiosyncrasies that structure normalcy, and how we makeshift our understanding of the world on a daily basis in order to psychologically and physically navigate it. I try to examine this by organizing my materials through my peculiarities but inside of borrowed organizational structures. I use everyday materials to push the uncanny result of these combinations in the hope that a recognition of these inconsistencies might challenge preconceived notions of symbol and meaning.
