Introducing myself is perpetually difficult. Whenever asked: “Where are you from?”, I struggle to answer to my satisfaction. I am one of the odd, rootless people of a new generation: my mother grew up in Brazil, my father in Austria, and I, around the world. My cultural experiences are fragmented, yet some places and passions have remained consistent in my life: family homes, and an inherent love for music (playing music from an early age), humanities subjects, and hands-on creativity.

I have attained a unique, expansive perspective formed by multiple disciplines. It continues to shift and establish itself. My absurdly wide-spread tastes range musically from Debussy to Jeff Buckley. All the while, my English accent remains in permanent limbo somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. This circuitous journey has been a blessing. My more academically-focused upbringing informs many of the questions that my work addresses. Literal displacements have imbued in me the instinct to collect elements (objects to videos) from physical surroundings. From this, I gravitate towards critical design methods, vulnerably juxtaposing these ideas through textiles and silhouettes. I have recently developed a particularly deep interest in knits; thoroughly enjoying playing with the idea of a knit binary code, and trying to intercept it.

I encourage discussion around the undefined metaphors generated from this approach, questioning societal structures and human-material relationships. My hope is that, from such conversations, people may discover new ideas for themselves (based on their own experiences) and question collective social attitudes.
