My themes intertwine actual experiences, dreams, and memories. I intentionally distort reality to create dreamlike images. M video loops, meant to be seamless, questions reality. Each experience is endless but also captures the possibility that a sudden cut will dissolve those memories or shift them. We believe an illusion: that memories can be lost in a second. In these dreamlike situations, I explore different realities. Truth, like objective reality, does not exist; however, we keep looking for the ?substance,? for both meaning and reassurance.
