Seeing differently is a part of my everyday experience and has influenced the way I communicate as an artist, designer and educator. Emulating experiences based on the experiences of disability, my recent installations and exhibitions have been both visual and haptic in nature, and are spatially oriented in ways that often require the audience to look and gather, and piece the fragments together into a poetic sense of time and place. Additional research focuses on the role of transmedia communication methods with regard to inclusive access to cultural experiences.

SCRIPTS FOR A WORLD IN CONSTANT MOTION - A new body of work that explores relationships of control and catastrophe through a series of installations where narratives are semantically extended to address intersections and influence as we bear witness to ripple of disruption initiated by the audience.
