As a multi-media artist, musician and educator, I seek to dissolve boundaries between traditional art forms, in the interest of expanding the lexicon of human expression. Using my multi-racial background, influences growing up in indigenous rural Alaska and international residencies, I explore new narratives of migration and diaspora, meditations on the connection between culture, people and place in our increasingly interwoven world. I am fascinated by the relationship between nature and technology and the alchemy of seemingly oppositional forcess: emptiness and form, ancient and future, acoustic and electronic elements combine to form a synthesis of emergent connection. I adapt ancient myth into contemporary storytelling, with narratives that draw attention to industrialization, our connection to nature, ancestry and our inner world. I believe that synesthetic environments activate multi-sensory perception to create new possibilities within our individual and collective imagination, providing a backbone for socio-cultural progress.
