My artwork is a release of the unrest I feel when trying to understand, cope with, and heal from injustice. I create installations and life-sized objects that discuss the many disparities of privilege. I prioritize viewers being able to access my work by using materials and text that can be considered easily recognizable. This artwork attempts to examine and challenge inherently unjust systems, such as academia and the media, that create and reinforce social inequalities.
