I enjoying making conceptual work about Canadian history, the settler identity and my own whiteness. I also think about Art Production allot; and labour; as well as those that perform labour and the flow of capital, in its many different forms (cultural, social, economic, etc…), within society, yes, thinking about all that really gets me going.
