Before a thought, there is an impulse;
I have found the most interesting facets of subject formation to occur in the often overlooked and dusty corners of our actions. Through the process of studying behavioral patterns, Parapraxis investigates the material that distinguishes us as separate bodies.
The diagrams within this body of work aim to express the potential of virtuality in form. Just as the content of our habitual behavior evades regions of conscious formation, the forms of Parapraxis are designed outside the constraints of manifest reality. Counter to the tradition of diagrammatic representation, they are constructed from the architecture of a system in flux. Transcending the static limitations of direct conscription, they represent a ceaselessly innervated system of influencing patterns.

Artist Statement:

My work investigates the feedback loop that causes people to make decisions based on the body. I am interested in the way we interact with our environment, and the design decisions which can affect response. I concentrate on the didactic processes of design, studying the way our bodies learn, perpetuate, and advance through interaction with tangible reality and haptic experience.
I focus my attention on systems, patterns, and schematic organizations already in place that cause people to behave in a specfic way.
I value my ability to move across diciplines, aligning myself with collaborators, applying design methodologies, and developing an understanding of new tools and materials, as well as new practices and techniques.
