In my practice I combine approaches of fossilization, speculative archaeology, and post-apocalyptic tropes in order to imagine the radical transformations that can emerge after chaos and destruction. I use casting and mold-making processes to document the gradual transformation of the everyday, excavating fictional artifacts and fossils that seek out and explore the undiscovered queer future. Out of context of time and place, they memorialize change and unknowability. Whether melting down scrap aluminum in the foundry into relics of resistance, or recasting actual garbage into prophetic geologic specimens, my work celebrates the latent destinies of genderhood on the brink of nonnormative inevitability.
The Hot Pants series casts clothing as a future artifact of movement, noting queerness as a guide for survival through change, while various found objects act as cairns indicating a transition towards a queer future.
