MY WRITING


I am writing poetry, stories, diaries, letters, essays, text as images, lists, schedules, speeches, performances and short stories. I transcribe recorded conversations, I listen to my friends, and I eavesdrop on the subway. 

 

During my bachelor studies I started making up frameworks for living and writing where the process of lived experience and the analyzing of, and commenting on it, became the main method of my artist practice. I have furthered these works into my MFA and I am currently experimenting with text documentation and/or representation of social practice art, and in particular of conversation pieces and dialogic works.
