︎ My practice is one of crafting texts to be read, whether that be sculpturally, writerly, performatively, etc. is based upon the form it needs to take, and the access I have to the world around me. Dwelling in the space of what Fred Moten and Stefano Harney would call study, a concerted effort towards an indebted sociality, in which voices are allowed to commingle and converse. To think art as conversation, as propaganda, as imagined space of an otherhow, is to position my work against absolute success, and for something which has yet to come. It is in this way that past work has taken many a form including: object-sentences which think towards physical contingencies; conversational study sessions; essayistic lecture performances; poetic essays about health justice, subjection, care, the nonbinary, sleep, cars, etc.; edited publications that think they are galleries; books which operate as art objects to be read; literary reading nights that put curiosity and conversation above all; and a small press which attempts to enable thoughts towards alternative epistemologies. This practice is a dedication to the misuse of meaning, codetermined conversation, and social study. I oppose desire for concrete meaning, and search for tangents, rhizomes, inconsistencies, openings, and mismanagements. In the pursuit of study, I work towards a distribution of information that crafts potential, camaraderie, and even friendship.
