Thesis (2020):

Now Frontier

Now Frontier is an MFA Thesis exhibition that explores the tension between craft and contemporary digital technology as manifested in wearable technologies. Through research and creative production I investigate and problematize binary oppositions often associated with craft and contemporary digital technologies. Casting myself as a central character – time traveller and mad scientist – in these works allows me to interrogate and construct a Time Machine Suit utilizing electronics, craft materials, and my own labour in ways that narrate both an autobiographical and speculative futures.
