Mixed Tapes

Works 2007-2018


Through the use of Mix Tapes, music became a compass to the audio map of our lives, using lyrics and music to facilitate an auditory neuron pathway to take us to any moment in time, but foremost a mix tape was a declaration of deep affection and affinity between the giver and recipient. With my Mix Tape works I was interested in unraveling the emotional content that we record of ourselves and pausing for a moment to explore the ways in which we rewind to segments in time to catalogue self expression.
