Invited in 2017 by the Cleveland Museum of Art to create a site-specific performance, installation and sound piece in collaboration with Henry Ross. The work, Death Knell, destroys a car as a live performance, using only hand tools, recording the sounds with dozens of contact microphones. The resulting audio composition was released as a double cassette by Unifactor Tapes, a Cleveland music label.
Operating under the umbrella ideas of destruction and survival, work includes transportation spectacles, rogue landscaping, shadow feminism, survivalist and self-help manuals, practical applications for theory, and canon revision of classic film. Developing a filmmaking technique “tactical nostalgia”—a form of stripping investigations tied to memory of sentimentality—to use with an in progress autobiographical documentary on regret and redemption narratives.

Currently faculty in Graduate Studies at Columbus College of Art & Design and the Art Department of The Ohio State University.
