    "Art is a moment of clarity amidst the chaos of structures we attempt to arrange and re-arrange around ourselves. It is a vehicle to the unknown. Life throws us a pile of leftovers, and we are challenged to make something out of it. It is this vital need to share, to question, to disrupt. Connecting body, voice, material, & space, I aim to present a collective rupture alongside a transformative self."
