About the art

I am interested in the appeal of collective beliefs in an age of relativism and draw mostly on the human, metaphysical and visual drama of early US space exploration to explore this subject.

My current PhD research uses photomontage based on historical images to examine how NASA’s Apollo moon-landing program functioned as a monumental work of cultural diplomacy; and how the political and cultural agendas it propagated have shifted over the intervening half-century.
