I use video, installation, and street art to address social issues. My inspiration comes from the latest discussions on the internet. I deliberately simplify issues such as gender bias and inequality by exaggerating the obvious. I find humor can be an effective method in the attempt to break down complex topics such as rape culture and society’s arbitrary beauty standards. On the opposite end, showing the disturbing reality of these issues can also make a big impact. Whether I use multi-channel video installation, performance, or social practice art, my goal is to influence society to move beyond the status quo.
