Writing


My work questions the relationship between text and images, and often uses appropriation to point to the contradictory messages embedded in the contemporary globalized environment. Feminism, photography theory, and literary theory underwrite my practice.

I am also dedicated to critical writing as art practice. Recent essays appearing in peer-reviewed publications include:
