“In my work, I simultaneously embrace and resist precision. Most of my work begins with a close examination of scientific literature, which is featured in the credits and program notes of my animations and performances, including the animated short Ant Sisters. While I employ abstraction, I strive for precision in my depiction of evolutionary and developmental biological processes. At the same time, I am interested in using biological processes as a departure point for reflecting on human experience and emotion, and it is this desire that takes me to imprecise territory where I embrace ambiguity and speculative fiction.”
