Buoy Boy


I built buoy boy while at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts on the 2021 MassArt Alumni Retreat. I found the buoy on the rocks on my first morning there. I took it to the wood shop and used wood scraps to build and carve out legs for it.

Womb Shelter


A large inflated structure made by binding sheets of plastic together with a soldering iron and filling it with air using a box fan.

The Womb Shelter is a return to childhood safety and comfort. Inside of it are stuffed animals and books, russian and english, from my childhood. In the background, a recording of my mother reading an entry from my great-grandmother’s journal recounting the days and weeks surrounding my birth plays.

The Womb Shelter was part of the Body Language exhibit at Dorchester Art Projects
