For many years my work has explored the body as the primary vehicle through which we experience the world both physically and psychologically. The work takes form in drawing, sculpture, installation,performance and film.

I am interested in how we know via feeling, through sensory perception,biological systems and  through the echoes of memory stored in the body.

Since 2005 I have been artist in residence at the Joseph LeDoux Neuroscience Lab at NYU . This on-going residency has informed my recent explorations of the brain mechanisms underlying human emotions.
