Over the span of my career, my multidisciplinary work has allowed me to passionately examine the intersections between installation, performance and new media. If I had to describe a guiding principle for my body of work I would say that I believe that making art is the most exhilarating when collisions are valued as an essential part of any process. My professional career has spanned more than 30 years, and I was initiated into this world by working as an artist, designer and performer within the New York City experimental installation, performance and dance world, lovingly known as the “downtown scene”. I have had the pleasure of working with many groundbreaking artists and performers including Elizabeth Streb, Richard Foreman, Ron Vawter, Ron Athey, Lori Carlos, Reza Abdoh, Ann Hamilton, Anne Bogart, Meredith Monk, Bebe Miller, John Kelly, Paul Lazaar, and Radiohole. My design and installation work has been exhibited internationally and I have been awarded a Bessie, in 1997, for my design work with Elizabeth Streb, as well as an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award in 2013. I earned my MFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1990 and my self-design BA in Visual Art and Performance from Antioch College in 1987. Most recently my work with the late Iranian theater director Reza Abdoh (1963-1995) has been featured in two major exhibitions, the first in September, 2018 at PS 1/MOMA in New York City, NY and the second in April of 2019 at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Germany, a documentary film by Adam Soch Reza Abdoh: Theater Visionary, and a soon to be released book by the curators of the exhibition Negar Azimi, Tiffany Malakooti, and Babak Radboy.
