Vivilt explores self-identity as a response to ‘the event’ and ‘being in the world’ that is suspended between technology and nature. I create a juxtaposition between self identity and the way the self engages and reacts to the world around them. My work remixes familiar or mundane objects with gesture and the body into a phantasm of layered imagery that is steeped in a larger issue of being and human in ‘the technological age of reproducibility’ as Walter Benjamin would say.
About Vivilt Flora:
Once cut, a flower's story is tragic, they are no longer apart of the natural order, are transported into the manmade world, where they are left in a vas only to be appreciated for transitory moments until discarded. Flowers become more interesting in their withering state, perpetuating a different kind of metaphoric language. The resulting series plays on ideas of the modern woman at any age, sexuality and how technology alters our perception of nature.

The light performance projects are series of “light graffiti” photos created in collaboration with performance artists who move with neon colored lights as an expression of their personal responses to human impact on the environment. Like contemporary graffiti, the light drawings, signatures and abstract patterns disrupt the landscape with individual traces.
