Moving between rural regions and cities, as well as between a writing and a material-based practice, I shift between working alone and collectively.Trained as an architect and navigating life as a chronically ill queer person, my practice revolves around the question of how to live together—with a focus on companionship and other forms of resistance. Bridging these interests with environmental questions and the climate crisis, I investigate the landscape(s) of thought and matter and the language(s) available to navigate the present.
