I use personal experience as a way of relating to others, through objects both found and made, the shared experience of being human. There is a fascinating universality in the ways so many can relate to nearly any experience despite it being general or specific. My artwork is an exploration of humanness and the ways in which we experience enculturation and assume identity of self within cultures. By assume identity, I refer to the way we adopt historical identity. The uniform and the group was a way in which I was being given the means to act a certain way through uniformity. Through my artwork I seek to examine several systems that condition action in children as well as adults.
