Statement

In my performances, I immerse myself in projections: projected images and text, projected identities, projected cultural ideals. I dance with these projections, performing the gestures of beauty rituals and habitual body monitoring that are projected in the ads and media coverage appearing on my Facebook feed, my Instagram feed, and my spam folder. Sketches and drawings document my process of interrogating, internalizing and performing these projections. The work ultimately investigates how the female body is silenced and how it speaks as it tries moment to moment to counter or to conform to each projection it encounters.
