Radical cultural critic Mike Davis contends that panic and an ecology of fear increasingly defines modern society. My artworks examine the cultural and social ecologies we inhabit as being transformed in unexpected, and often, uncontrollable ways. These transformations are often viewed through the lens of biology, the aesthetics of disaster, and the psychology of trepidation. It is an aesthetic in which art, science, medicine, and the environment overlap.
