About

Working in the realm of ephemeral art, I actively explore the physicality of my body in relation to space. In 2009, I went through a personal shape shift after a mindful and significant weight loss. Around this time, I began a project titled "Adventures in Being (small)" where I explore spaces and places that I could not previously fit. This began as an exercise in measuring my new body, but soon evolved into a practice that addresses the way that we as humans fit into various environments, both physically and conceptually.

For the past year I have been squeezing myself through fences, between parking meters, inside newspaper stands, through trees, the negative space in furniture etc. I have implemented this practice all over Massachussetts, in New York and recently in Shanghai, China.
My goal is to challenge myself to explore as many spaces as possible, while simultaneously expanding my audience. 


I now have the opportunity to take "Adventures in Being (small)" on tour. In December, I will be traveling across the United States from Boston, MA to California to discover both natural and human-made spaces.

I would like to be able to purchase a new camera to document this venture. I am hoping that Kickstarter can help me make this a reality so that I can use the images from this project to publish a book and print large photographs that I can exhibit in the future.

Thank you for your time and support!
