Professional Internet Ghost, Busy Bee

My main goal in life is to curate the presence only ghosts can have-- a monument of work that's undoubtedly real, but lacks a body to place any of it to. This praises the erased essences that are perpetually ignored when they're not being misconstrued: my culture, my people, my sexuality, and my fantasies.  Likewise I engage with ghost feelings, memories of emotions, and subjects involved within that like nostalgia, liminal space transformations, and obsolete internet.

 

In my own work, I take advantage of the tools and platforms that the digital world offer and always hasten to involve it within my work. The distortions of not only reality, but its concreteness, especially through a digital lens, is important to me. And fun to explore!
