Over the past 15 years I have been making multidisciplinary art influenced by the complex history of Niagara Falls. The invention of widespread electricity, industrialization, the Manhattan Project, Love Canal - I have explored how each of these have contributed to mutilating our environment and in turn ourselves. I expanded the scope of my research while living and working in Dumbo, Brooklyn for two years after realizing I was living on one of Dumbo’s three superfund sites filled with lead. My current work “Unseen”, highlights the voices of real people who have been affected by industrial toxic waste inside their own homes. I work in many forms including multimedia installation, photography and painting.
*Dumbo’s superfund sites include: 220 Water St., 68 Jay St, and 85 Jay St.
24/7 - My brain never turns off.
