I am an artist interested in finding visual form for the cacophony of life’s experiences by translating those experiences first into data and then arrangements of line and color. Having lived overseas for 19 years, in both Taiwan and India, my life has been lived in perpetual transit between various places I call home.  My most recent works seek to code my sensory perceptions of the world around me. I assign a color to each repeating element (for instance, the sudden presence of a car, or a bird song) and track the elements in order of appearance. Or I document a journey by allowing the movement of the vehicle in which I am riding to dictate my lines. These drawings and paintings are analytical and documentary in nature, and speak to the quixotic attempt to record, see, sort, and archive sensory experiences in a way that reflects the rhythms and patterns of my life. The practice of documenting, coding, and visually translating has become a way to locate and integrate myself as a foreign element, in motion, between worlds.
