People maintain histories through memory filtered through language to create fictions. My work involves the recording and incorporation of stories into audio and sculptural and installation, to reveal the structures that make up the fictions we exist within. For this exhibition, it is through a combination of disparate objects: fingers, furniture, potatoes and peach pits, stripped of their colors and humming with life that I am investigating my own fictions and their undeniable relations with others.
