My work explores the space in which miscommunication occurs, whether in verbal speech or in silent awkwardness.  I am intrigued with how people read each other, or misread each other, rather and how conflict occurs through misreading social cues.  Sarcasm, excess speech such as the words, “uhh” and “umm,” over extended politeness, and voice intonation have been the main subjects of my work.  I have recently started creating more interactive work so that the viewer is able to choose how he/she wants to read the message which adds a new dimension to the space of miscommunication.
