I am currently exploring a body of artwork that addresses the ways we communicate with each other visually, through body language. These pieces become participatory instruments for gestural expression.

Posture Gauge — Chin marks the beginning of a series that gauges postures based on the meanings and feelings that are associated with them. Depending on the position of one’s chin, this tool measures one’s level of introversion or extroversion.

An old proverb rightfully claims, “actions speak louder than words.” Although our body movements may be mute to the ears, they are inevitably far more revealing than the spoken word, which often disguises.
