The works I submitted are just a couple of things I’ve made throughout this insane year. Some projects were in the making, but COVID-19 cut my last semester at UNCG short, though it couldn’t stop me from creating imagery. Technology has been a useful tool to finetune and extend art to the digital/virtual space, for me. I’m experimenting with new ways to create, expanding beyond just photography, to computer-generated renderings. I want my work to feel like strange infinite instances, activating a visual sense of motion. When I look light, I think about what I can and can’t see, and how our own eyes limit the information we perceive, constantly informing our reality.

My favorite songs, poems and books make me think and also provide such detail that it makes me feel like I was apart of the experience. Inherently, I’m a story teller and as a creative I love to tell a good story in everything that I do. I love details that provide smell, visual, feel, etc. As an artist I aim to tell a story so well that it is felt so deeply that my listener can see the experience. I want them to feel like they were there. I aim to create movies with my words. I aim to be to the ear what the silent movie was to the eye.
