I am an artist, researcher, and educator. I am interested in theories of posthumanism, relational ontology, process philosophy, assemblage, nonhumans, emergence, technology…and more. Much of the work I create attempts to create shared experiences between humans and nonhumans. Often this hinges upon revealing the processes and operations of nonhumans for a human audience. I hold a PhD from the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University, my dissertation, titled "Transductive Praxis in BioArt: Relational Ontology and Aesthetics of Nonhuman Experience," focused on my artistic practice and the philosophy of Gilbert Simondon and others (especially Alfred North Whitehead). I also received an MFA in Intermedia from the Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland, and BAs in Art History and the Comparative History of Ideas at the University of Washington.
I am a Lecturer in Human Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington.
