Brock University

I am a white settler with Hungarian, Irish, Scottish, Mongolian, and Jewish ancestors. I was raised on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe and Ininew peoples, and on the homeland of the Metis nation (Selkirk Manitoba). My practice includes video, animation, writing, installation, experimental collaboration, drawing, and printmaking. My work exhibits in public art, interactive video installation, outdoor site-specific installation, film festivals, and galleries. My artworks investigate immanence, encounter, haptic perception, and non-visual knowledge in moving images. My work has shown in Canada, US, France, Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Cuba, Turkey, UAE, and Korea. I have received research awards and grants from SSHRC, Canada Council for the Arts, BC Arts Council and Ontario Arts Council and experimental / experiential pedagogy grants from both provincial and federal funders. I hold a BA in Theatre and Writing (University of Manitoba / University of Winnipeg), a BFA in Visual Art (Simon Fraser University), a Sculpture Diploma (Capilano University) and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art (Simon Fraser University).
