I make because I’m making it make sense. That ‘it’ takes many forms in my work including identity, mortality, and productivity, but it can ultimately be understood as existence. My work serves as a form of auto-ethnography: systematically analyzing personal experience in order to understand cultural experience. Making, for me, serves as the way of literally attempting to create understandings that are missing from myself. One could say, I currently make about making. In choosing to be an artist as an occupation, I must literally and metaphorically make a living, make a life, further complicating my relationship between work and myself.
