more about me:

boston based, nonbinary, saggitarius. i like collecting specifically ironic garfield memorabilia, watching 2d cartoons (some good ones are: mission hill, rock and rule, the treasure planet), and speculating on the social implications of webspeak and internet culture on society (read my thesis). central themes in my art include queer identity, web culture, and intimacy. i have a lot of other interests too.... web brutalism, bookbinding, needle felting, watercolors, slime..... to name a few. (if any of this stuff makes u curious or u want 2 start a convo w me u should hit me up).

The Meme Textbook

a precursor to my thesis; this is an academic style textbook about memes. it chronicles their history, breaks down their formats and humor styles, and poses the question: what even are memes? this series is theoretically ongoing, although it is currently on the backburner.

'trauma center' with trigger warning and sticker bowl on a pedestel, behind is projected woods on vinyl type

trauma center

a gallery installation made in collaboration with dani dinstman about our experiences with emotional and sexual trauma. the installation centers around an enclosed 'trauma center' surrounded by a metaphorical waiting room, which uses the language often directed at trauma survivors.

forget-her-not

a gallery installation made in collaboration with olivia gelard. inspired by the essay "grandmother spider" by rebecca solnit, louise bourgeois, and our own matrilineal lines, the gallery pays homage to the forgotten women throughout history and embraces traditionally feminine art-forms ('''''''''craft''''''''').

at least my cactus is alive

this installation was made for a project in my junior typography class (an autobiography in 6 words). i basically spent all my spare time for a week holed up in this room, on 3 cups of coffee and two of those Starbucks Espresso Double Shot™s and scrawled about all of my anxiety and trauma on lined paper then hung those on hemp string. there's also a presentational video.

what social media should you post that on?

this wall installation, made entirely of vinyl and gaffer tape, is a teen-magazine-style quiz that will tell you what social media to post on based on the content. the installation comments on the collective understanding of social media nuance and attempts to codify some content classifications.
