My research-based practice employs props, scaffold and trusswork to support models of representation for queer forms that challenge the gaze of classifying taxonomies.  This critique via form, space, and ephemera resists the social dynamics that reinforce our constructions of what may be understood as aspirational.  Appropriated and abstracted references to domestic spaces, gay bars and other more provisional architectures, poach key signifiers of gender- and hetero-normativity and open them onto new attachments of possibility and desire from what might seem otherwise to be static legacies.
