“I take a scientific approach to photographic art making. Exploring my desire to make outer space more accessible both in matter and concept. I knew at a young age I was destined to travel above the Earth’s atmosphere, although space travel has yet to cross my path it is important I find other means to wander. Utilizing the tools of science and playful experimentation, I recontextualize common objects through the lens of a microscope and natural phenomenon. ”
