I am interested in exploring the different ways people value physical and emotional labor, and I specifically focus on the liminal space one may encounter while trying to navigate cultural and social identity. While I often gain inspiration from my own experiences within the greater Greek diaspora of North America, I try to create works that speak to notions of unease and belonging that are more universally accessible. Materials like hog gut can help to physically express many of the conflicting emotions one may encounter while living a hyphenated existence (as the material is both simultaneously repulsive and attractive), while sonically documenting the repetitious ephemeral motions of labor can help create a sense of generational harmony and connectivity throughout time.
