How does our identity differ from our exterior presentation? How does our history of gendered materials apply to a transgender landscape? My practice investigates these questions, revolving around the creation of Second Skins: encasing furniture in polyethylene membranes or contouring yarn to trace the grain on found wood.
I draw inspiration from camp, drag, and the club scene: spaces where a reality is the product of transgression through illusion. I reside in subcultures prioritizing materiality, determining value through attention, labor, and subverting tradition. Proudly nonbinary, I extend my own queering unto inanimate objects: mixing masculine and feminine materials, hard and soft, textile and sculpture.
