My academic practice oscillates between theoretical research and applied design. I make sculptures and analyze public art through its’ relationships to spaces accessible to the public at large, to the human body, and to temporal and historical contexts. My current academic research focuses on art in public places, time-based compositions, competing definitions of publicness, art in physical and virtual spaces, and body-based practices.
