My work engages with “virtual realism” and the politics of visualization to investigate how speculative activity affects our perception of reality. Encompassing bodycam policies, surveillance advertising, military simulation software, and the use of AI in prisons, my research historicizes systems of control in order to analyze how image technologies affect social behaviour through legibility and repetition. Amidst a deluge of photo-documentary and photo-generative systems, the problem with imagery today is no longer distinguishing real from fake, but discerning actual events from simulated models.

In my practice, I emphasize the constructedness of all images, not to contest their truthfulness, but to reveal the technological methods and social conditions through which meaning emerges. Accordingly, my artworks draw on computer vision, animal crypsis, and documentary practices to revitalize the inhabitation of a surveilled world.

Recent exhibitions include ENTRE, VRAL, Natalia Hug Galerie, Artists Space, and The Polygon Gallery. From 2018 to 2021 I co-edited the periodical QOQQOON. From 2021 to 2022 I participated in the Whitney Independent Study Program. Thank you to Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council for their funding and support.
