Body

September 2017

 

My body of work currently focuses on 3D objects and performance pieces usually establishing the body as an object rather than the subject. I'm very interested in tactual experiences, full-body experiences, and exploring a more immersive art form in the way that the audience experiences it. I'm very drawn to sculptures because viewers will relate to it with their whole body rather than just their headspace, especially when the piece they are looking at has the human form in it in some way shape or form. I hope to expand on how I materialize my concepts and strengthen my technical execution skills. One of my favorite performance artists is Marina Ambromovic, as cliche as that is, because her work was directly connected to the discipline she learned throughout her life from her militant parents. This ability to surpass her body's physical limitations through an almost meditative way of thinking is the most fascinating thing to me.
