Me

As someone who has a background in computer science and who grew up close to Silicon Valley, I feel simultaneously enchanted and disgusted by technologies that deal in collection, identification, and modification. I cope with this duality by adopting an investigative role.
In many cases, I use technology to recreate my subject, playing with preservationist and conservationist philosophies in (what I recognize as) a drive to digitally catalog when the future sociopolitical, as well as ecological, environment is uncertain. I collect scans of waste material: dead birds, fruit skins, and re-present these within a language of the document.

I graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in 2023, focusing in the Art and Technology Studies Department. While there, I worked at the radio station for two years, as well as the BioArt lab. I also participated on a team in the BioDesign Sprint for two years: in 2021 and 2022. I am an organizer, and regularly organize events centered around learning and sharing knowledge.

Currently, I co-host a podcast centered around the revival of medieval aesthetics and the emergence of sociopolitical terms neofeudalism and technofeudalism. In addition, I am the Coordination Intern at Bird Show, an outdoor project space in Chicago, IL.

I currently live and work in Chicago on the stolen land of the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Odawa peoples.
