I create virtual and real spaces that reconstitute interactions between people without immigration papers, and citizens. My works seek table-turning forms for the everyday crises of citizen-undocumented engagement in the context of expanding government operations to catch and imprison immigrants. Audiences and participants are interchangeable in this art of cohabitation. I bring a background in architecture and marketing for architecture firms, to both virtual and built works. Design and marketing languages are appropriated to promote satirical solutions to today's hotly contested immigration politics.
