Statement from the artist:

"My practice rotates around themes of perception, memory, and place. I work to understand how we perceive or fail to perceive moments in their natural context, and how this can expose the tension between the familiar fading away and the unfamiliar appearing. My recent work uses imagery appropriated from my grandfather’s standard 8mm family films shot in Florida throughout the 1960s and 70s. These films were shot on a camera that unexpectedly exposed the film outside of its standardized frame, creating moments existing only in the film’s margins. By appropriating the space where the image has bled out of the frame, I am also creating a space for overlooked moments to be noticed within projects that require the labor of reading images."
