I am fascinated by our ambivalent relationship to our bodies and the lengths that people have gone to contain them. I ask viewers to explore their own discomfort, but at the same time embrace its absurdity. I often use insects as a metaphor for the body, tapping into people's visceral associations and drawing connections between the chaos of nature, the body and the futility of our attempts to control them both.
