I am interested in exploring drawing thoroughly from marks made on paper to marks made in immersive environments. While in residence I plan to work on graphite and pen and ink drawings — trying to explore new content stemming from research about glitch moments and the observable world, and trying to push the scale of the works to larger pieces. I also plan to work on new installation projects that explore ways to combine my three-dimensional drawing projects with these new graphite and ink drawings. I want to create worlds that surround people with the drawn mark and to create a space where the inscribed is made real.
